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.


Time for Time-Varying Diffusivity?

Researchers Julius Busecke and Ryan Abernathey have been using MITgcm in a study geared towards developing a time-resolved global dataset of surface lateral mesoscale eddy diffusivities.


Exploring ENSO-Related Global Ocean Heat Content Variations in ECCOv4

Researchers from China and Australia have been using the ECCOv4 dataset, an MITgcm product, to investigate ENSO-Related Global Ocean Heat Content Variations.


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.


Islands in the Stream

A group from National Taiwan University has been using MITgcm to study submesoscale island wakes in the Kuroshio Current off Taiwan.


Exploring the Southern Ocean pCO2 Wind Stress Connection

This month we spotlight work from UK researchers led by Ben Bronselaer (formerly of Oxford, now at Princeton) who have been using MITgcm to understand the feedback between mixed-layer partial pressure of carbon dioxide pCO2 and wind stress in the Southern Ocean.


The Seesawing Indonesian Through Flow


This month we spotlight work from researcher Wlademir Santis (Oceanographic Institute, University of Sao Paulo, Pça. do Oceanográfico, Brazil) and co-authors who have been using MITgcm in work seeking to understand how the Indonesian Throughflow (ITF) might vary under ice age conditions.


Shaken and Stirred


This month we spotlight research from researchers at MIT have been using MITgcm to model the interplay between vertical convection and lateral exchange due to baroclinic instability.
