Where the River Meets the Sea

A group from Japan has been using MITgcm to explore the spreading of river plumes.

Connecting the Dots with MITgcm

This month we look at new work exploring whether high resolution MITgcm tracer simulations can help “connect the dots” in the sparse sampling problem associated with observing the evolution of released dye in a shallow sea.

Modeling Internal Standing Waves using MITgcmThis month we look at work by Nicolas Grisouard and Chantal Staquet of the Laboratoire des Ecoulements Geophysiques et Industriels, Grenoble, France, who have been using MITgcm to model internal solitary waves (ISWs) of a kind observed in the Bay of Biscay.

Tidal Mixing Over Rough Topography

Snapshot of wave zonal velocity (ms-1) deviation from the barotropic tide in the control simulation. Work by Maxim Nikurshin and Sonya Legg at GFDL using a 2d version of MITgcm to explore radiation and dissipation of the internal tides generated through tidal mixing over rough topography…
