A Big Enough Flood
Geologists from WHOI and UMass have been using MITgcm to probe whether melting arctic sea-ice could have slowed the AMOC enough to precipitate the Younger Dryas.
A team of Italian climate modelers has been evaluating the performance of a new version of the Regional Earth System Model (RegCM-ES) over the Mediterranean region. The model uses MITgcm for its ocean component.
Researchers use MITgcm to demonstrate how hydrodynamic processes in lakes can intensify the potential impact of watershed pollutants on coastal ecosystems.
Researchers use MITgcm to understand how phytoplankton blooms and inorganic carbon respond to sea-ice variability in the West Antarctic Peninsula.
