Tracking Down Climate’s Tipping Points
A group at UNIGE in Switzerland uses MITgcm aquaplanet experiments to probe climate sensitivity.
Exploring Zooplankton Dynamics in the Gulf of Mexico
FSU graduate student Taylor Shropshire has been using MITgcm to explore zooplankton dynamics in the Gulf of Mexico.
Arctic Shipping Forecast
MITgcm underpins a new Chinese Arctic sea-ice prediction system.
Wild and Windy Exoplanets
A team of US and UK-based researchers has been using MITgcm to explore the effect of disequilibrium chemistry on the atmospheric circulation and radiative transfer characteristics of Hot Jupiters.
The Problem with Polynyas
A new study from British Antarctic Survey uses MITgcm to explore what effect excessive Weddell Sea convection may have on nearby continental ice shelves.
Exploring AMOC Sensitivity
A team from the UK has been using an ocean-only configuration of the MITgcm and its adjoint to explore the sensitivity of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to surface heat and freshwater fluxes over the Subpolar Gyre.
Breaking the Ice
Researchers from Germany and Canada study fracturing of sea ice by comparing different rheologies in the MITgcm sea-ice package
Tracking the Heat
Researchers in the US and the UK have been analyzing ocean heat transport in a recent ECCO dataset to investigate how it varies globally
