MITgcm Goes to Ocean Sciences 2022
This month, a taste from the smorgasbord of papers using MITgcm served up at this year’s Ocean Sciences Meeting.
Research using MITgcm explores the impact of including nonseasonal river discharge in a global ocean model.
Under Sea Riches
A contingent of European researchers use MITgcm to predict how sediments kicked up by seafloor mining disperse.
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.
Researchers use MITgcm to understand how phytoplankton blooms and inorganic carbon respond to sea-ice variability in the West Antarctic Peninsula.
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.
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.
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.
