Arctic Shipping Forecast

MITgcm underpins a new Chinese Arctic sea-ice prediction system.

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.

Mercury Rising

A joint Harvard – MIT study uses MITgcm to explore the biogeochemistry of riverine mercury.

Overflowing with Movies

Nuno Serra from the University of Hamburg has used MITgcm in many ocean modeling projects, both from a process-modelling perspective and “realistically”, incorporating forcing from NCEP and ECMWF. He is especially interested in the processes regulating North Atlantic and North Pacific inter-annual to inter-decadal variability. A particular passion is overflows.

MITgcm on Ice

In a recent paper in the Journal of Physical Oceanography, An Nguyen (MIT) and co-authors Ronald Kwok (JPL) and Dimitris Menemenlis (JPL) report on work using MITgcm to better understand the origin and character of  the western arctic, upper halocline.

北极海冰数值预报的初步研究!!!MITgcm基于海冰!海洋耦合模式!”# $

Bathymetry and boundaries of the Arctic domain in the model - source Yang et al., 2011.This month we shine light on recently published work by a team of Chinese investigators who have been using MITgcm to study Arctic sea ice.

Arctic Carbon Cycle Modeling

Arctic Biogeochemical Model - Change in Surface Net Community Production, year-on-year between 2006 and 2007 using MITgcm. Motivated by observations indicating rapidly falling annual sea-ice minima, Manfredi Manizza and co-workers have been using an Arctic configuration of MITgcm to explore the Arctic Ocean Carbon Cycle.
