Johns Hopkins Magazine Feature

Johns Hopkins Magazine Feature

Our group’s work on Denmark Strait overflow and Arctic-Subarctic Ocean climate dynamics is featured in the latest Johns Hopkins Magazine. The issue is devoted to the Oceans at JHU, and there are several other fascinating stories on marine research by our esteemed Hopkins colleagues and by our illustrious alumni!

Atousa’s Reflections on Teaching

Atousa’s Reflections on Teaching

Atousa Saberi has published a blog post on her experience teaching an undergraduate class for the first time. She was supported by a Dean’s Teaching Fellowship in Fall 2020 and taught Natural Hazards. Great work Atousa!

Nordic Seas Heat and Salt Redistribution

Nordic Seas Heat and Salt Redistribution

Collaborator Mike Spall has published a paper in Progress in Oceanography with Mattia Almansi and Tom. The paper shows that the dominant exchange between within the Nordic Seas is an export of warm, salty water from the Norwegian Sea into the Greenland and Iceland Seas, with both the mean cyclonic boundary current system and eddy […]

Ali Siddiqui in action at sea

Ali Siddiqui in action at sea

Ali is participating in the 2021 GO-SHIP A22 expedition on the R/V Thompson to the western North Atlantic Ocean. He’s a CTD watch stander and working with the LADCP. Here, he’s in action with a sofar spotter metocean buoy. It may look like he threw it over the side, but in fact he’s using Jedi […]

New cyber-infrastructure project funded

New cyber-infrastructure project funded

Tom is Co-PI on a new NSF cyber-infrastructure project. The project will build a public data-base of fluid dynamics simulations, including submesoscale ocean circulation (for example, Langmuir turbulence, as depicted, from co-PI Sullivan et al. 2012). The team is led by Charles Meneveau, with Hopkins, Georgia Tech, and NCAR collaborators. Read about the project here.

Is Computational Oceanography Coming of Age?

Is Computational Oceanography Coming of Age?

The Poseidon Project team has published a commentary in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society with the title above. Read the article here to find out why we think the answer is YES!

Paper on Coastal Trapped Waves along the Southeast Greenland Coast

Paper on Coastal Trapped Waves along the Southeast Greenland Coast

Associate Research Scientist Renske Gelderloos has published a paper in JPO on Coastal Trapped Waves and other subinertial variability along the Southeast Greenland Coast in a realistic numerical simulation. The abstract reads:Ocean currents along the Southeast Greenland Coast play an important role in the climate system. They carry dense water over the Denmark Strait sill, […]

Shear Dispersion Talk

Shear Dispersion Talk

Tom gave a talk at the 2020 IDIES & MINDS Symposium. The title is: Towards the Development of Scale-Dependent, Non-Local, Turbulent Closures in Rotating Stratified Flows. The talk reports on the 2020 IDIES Seed Fund Award to Tom and Charles Menenveau. Postdoc Miguel Jimenez Urias did the work, which involves a new exact solution to […]

Surface Ocean Mixing Paper

Former postdoc Aleksi Nummelin has published a paper in the Journal of Physical Oceanography. The title is “Diagnosing the Scale and Space Dependent Horizontal Eddy Diffusivity at the Global Surface Ocean.” See the preprint here.

Computational Oceanography is Coming of Age

The Poseidon Project team has submitted a commentary to the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society on the rise of Computational Oceanography. See the preprint here.
