Oceanographic processes in the shallow continental shelf and coastal regions have a major impact on human life, since a large fraction of human population lives within 100 km of the shoreline (Halpern et al., 2008). At the same time, the processes occurring in these regions are difficult to analyze and disentangle, because of their intrinsic complexity, the variability of temporal and spatial scales, their multidisciplinary nature, and the influence of offshore boundary conditions (Dickey, 2003; Mitchell et al., 2015).
