Special Issue: The Philippine Straits Dynamics Experiment

On the Cover: The complex geography of the islands, seas, and straits of the Philippines Archipelago poses challenges to observation and modeling. The Office of Naval Research sponsored the Philippine Straits Dynamics Experiment (PhilEx) to integrate in situ and remote observations with global and regional models to improve our understanding and predictive skill of archipelago-scale spatial and temporal variability.
