In this talk, Professor Arbic will describe how ocean circulation models work and how they predict physical motions in the ocean, including currents, eddies, and tides. He will discuss the many applications of ocean models, including short-term ocean forecasting, national security applications, longer-term global change predictions, and preparing for satellite ocean monitoring missions. The talk will focus on the work done in our group here at University of Michigan, with a focus on oceanic eddies and tides.
