Related Research. In addition to a modest program identified with USGCRP focused research, DOD contributory research addresses issues in observing, understanding, and predicting global change, including observing and monitoring unique middle and upper atmosphere phenomena; acoustic tomographic measurements of the ocean at basin and hemispheric scales; fundamental research programs in physical oceanography, ocean biology, marine meteorology, air-sea interaction and solar influences; coupled ocean-atmosphere model development at various spatial scales; and a unique program in atmospheric dynamics and global cloud specification/modeling.
