information provided by dynamical systems theory

Information provided by Dynamical Systems theory


  • Upwelling source
  • Barriers in the flow
  • Regions with qualitatively different dynamics.

DS Structures

  • Regions of high DLE
  • Ridges of the DLE field, i.e. LCS,
  • LCS divide the domain in dynamical regions.

LCS is a tool to help understand and visualize the global flow structure and dynamical patterns without having to compute and visualize each constituent trajectory.

Continue Developing Dynamical System Tools

Task 1:

  • Explore and improve the use of 2-D LCS for Front Tracking /Prediction, and Lagrangian Predictions
  • Study Characteristic modes of flow
    • Find time-scale of dynamically unique modes
    • Use to compute corresponding LCS
  • Extend LCS to 3-D!

LCS for sensor coverage

Task 2:

  • Use LCS to partition flow into regions of different characteristic behavior
    • Determining sampling regions for gliders is simplified
    • Correlation between DLE and local statistics
    • Find best time/location for deployment and recovery
lcs for optimal path planning
LCS for Optimal Path Planning

Task 3:

  • Use LCS to help reconfigure gliders during transit periods
  • Optimal Path vs LCS:(Preliminary result)
