COCES-II (Coastal Ocean Circulation Experiment off Senegal)

The general objective of the COCES-II project is to investigate the coastal dynamics off the coast of Senegal, a region strongly dominated by coastal upwelling, using drifter data, satellite observations and numerical simulations. Specific goals are:

1. to construct unbiased-circulation maps; 
2. to describe the upwelling circulation features; 
3. to simulate the coastal circulation with a numerical model; 
4. to train local Senegalese oceanographers (capacity building).
