Description of Scientific Projects

Modeling of the North Atlantic general circulation with a hierarchy of OGCM's endowed with data assimilation packages for a variety of data (altimetric, hydrographic etc.) aimed to explore the mechanisms controlling the intensity and shape of the Meridional Overturning Circulation, of the meridional heat transport, variability of Sea Surface Temperature anomalies and their effects on and interactions with the atmosphere. Special focus is on the tropical/subtropical interactions and exchanges of mass and heat, and how they affect the Tropical Atlantic Variability of the interannual/interdecadal time scales. Current as of 10/17/01
