GRL paper describes turbulent mixing in the Chesapeake Bay plume

Turbulence measurements made by an autonomous underwater vehicle reveal that the wind‐driven offshore movement of a coastal river plume leads to intermittent and patchy mixing of plume and shelf waters. These novel, high‐resolution observations highlight the importance of capturing transient features when determining the fate of rivers on continental shelves.
