Large-Scale Eddy-Driven Pattern Model

Caption: Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, a new study between teams led by University of Miami associate professor Igor Kamenkovich and Naval Postgraduate School associate professor Timour Radko will investigate critical oceanic processes involved in the Large-Scale Eddy-Driven Patterns (LEPDs). A combination of analytical and numerical methods will be used to tackle this complex problem. This will make it possible to offer a more complete and realistic description of LEDPs, directly applicable to observations and comprehensive climate models. The project will also help to describe the eddy transport of such important tracers as heat and carbon caused by the LEDPs.
