DescriptionOcean circulation affects climate, the marine ecosystem, and directly impacts society (through navigation, transport of sediment and pollution, fisheries etc.). Therefore, the processes that determine these phenomena are critical for a complete understanding of the seas around us. The course will include a brief description of observational features, but it will emphasize the theoretical framework that underlies them. The course will cover : (i) Large-scale circulation of the open ocean: Observations, simulations with general circulation and simple models, and the processes underlying the dynamics (ii) Comparison of model simulations with direct current measurements (iii) Shelf circulation (iv) Instabilities: Eddies, fronts, and filaments. The goal of this course is to provide a dynamical foundation for understanding oceanographic phenomena on a range of temporal and spatial scales. The course will be conducted by Prof. Julian P. McCreary, Jr., International Pacific Research Centre (IPRC), University of Hawaii, USA.
