New publication from Professor of Physical Oceanography, Dr. Tom Connolly

SJSU/MLML professor of physical oceanography, Dr. Tom Connolly, and co-author, Dr. Anthony R. Kricinch of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, recently published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans. Their article, "High-resolution observations of subsurface fronts and alongshore bottom temperature variability over the inner shelf", found that drastic variations in water temperatures occurred often and within short distances along Martha's Vineyard coastline which were caused by several influences, such as bathymetry. In terms of data collection, this information is valuable to scientists because it demonstrates the need to take temperature readings at multiple locations within the study area.
