MAR 645: Ocean Circulation & Modeling
Prereq: PHY 550/MAR 555
Theories of ocean circulation, including wind-driven and thermohaline components, and their numerical modeling. The concepts of geostrophy, Sverdrup-to-Strommel dynamics, stratification, rotation, and diffusion processes are discussed for the general circulation features in all three world oceans. Primitive equation-based numerical modeling experiments are discussed for the global-scale, basin-scale, regional-scale, and feature-based models.
