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:
COCES-II (Coastal Ocean Circulation Experiment off Senegal)
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).
