High Latitude Channel Flow Revisited

Canadian researchers have been using the MITgcm in an idealized channel to investigate high-latitude tidal dynamics relevant to the fjords and channels of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

An Eddy – Internal Solitary Wave Tango

This month we spotlight work by a team from the Chinese Academy of Science’s South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, Guangzhou, China, who have been using MITgcm to investigate the interaction of internal solitary waves with mesoscale eddies.

Modeling Internal Solitary Waves,

Modeling Internal Standing Waves using MITgcmThis month we look at work by Nicolas Grisouard and Chantal Staquet of the Laboratoire des Ecoulements Geophysiques et Industriels, Grenoble, France, who have been using MITgcm to model internal solitary waves (ISWs) of a kind observed in the Bay of Biscay.

Tidal Mixing Over Rough Topography

Snapshot of wave zonal velocity (ms-1) deviation from the barotropic tide in the control simulation. Work by Maxim Nikurshin and Sonya Legg at GFDL using a 2d version of MITgcm to explore radiation and dissipation of the internal tides generated through tidal mixing over rough topography…
