Ocean Modeling and Theory
from global to universal
We study the physics of the ocean and how the ocean fits into the Earth's climate system, using models that range from the global scale to focused process models that apply universally. We seek mathematically interesting problems with practical uses.
The products we produce are parameterizations, diagnostics, and toy models. That is, after study of complex processes in dedicated and computationally expensive models, we work out simple but accurate approximations and crucial measurements to diagnose. Sometimes the goal is to improve the community models, and sometimes the goal is to aid understanding with a toy model that mimics the complex system.
