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.
MITgcm goes to EPSC2021
Three groups using MITgcm shared their Hot Jupiter research at this year’s European Planetary Science Congress.
Under Sea Riches
A contingent of European researchers use MITgcm to predict how sediments kicked up by seafloor mining disperse.
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.
Tracking Down Climate’s Tipping Points
A group at UNIGE in Switzerland uses MITgcm aquaplanet experiments to probe climate sensitivity.
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.
Modeling in Anticipation of Future Space Missions
A team of researchers from JPL and the University of Hawaii analyzed the distribution of internal gravity waves and submesoscale balanced motions in the near-surface around the globe in a recent 1/48° MITgcm simulation.
When the Wind Blows Harder
Andreas Klocker, an oceanographer working at the University of Tasmania, has been using MITgcm to explore the sensitivity of ventilation to surface wind stress in the Southern Ocean.
