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.


How the Ocean Breaths

This month we spotlight research from a Georgia Tech team who have been revisiting early modeling experiments using MITgcm to take a closer look at oxygen uptake during deep convection.


Modeling Melting Glaciers


This month we spotlight a recent multi-institutional study led by Dustin Carroll that has been using MITgcm to explore what controls circulation in tidewater glacier fjords.


MITbioGeoCheMistry

This month we spotlight work seeking to couple the MITgcm with another open-source marine biogeochemistry tool developed and maintained by a consortium involving modelers across Europe and also South Africa.


Melting Antarctica

This month we spotlight work by Alberto C. Naveira Garabato. Garabato and his team have been running idealized modelling experiments using MITgcm to study the immediate behavior of meltwater as it ascends from an ice shelf cavity.


Shelf Slip

This month we spotlight work by researchers at Imperial College, London, UK, who have been using MITgcm to study the circulation on the Shetland Shelf system.


Reversing the Ionian

The driving mechanisms behind the decadal reversal of the Ionian Sea upper layer circulation recently sparked a considerable discussion in the Mediterranean scientific community. A new paper by Marco Reale uses MITgcm to explore.


2015 Research Roundup

Another new year, another research roundup! Best wishes to MITgcmers past, MITgcmers present and MITgcmers yet to come…


Wind Blown

In a new study, researchers from Scripps have been using MITgcm to evaluate the role form stress across bottom topography plays in balancing the input of stress by wind at the surface.


Jurassic Currents

This month we look at new work by a team of Swiss researchers who have been using MITgcm to explore the ocean circulation associated with the global land distribution during the Jurassic.
