Tom is teaching the Scouts BSA Oceanography merit badge! The program is being run through the Natural History Society of Maryland. For more details and registration, click here.
Happy New Year! Tom welcomed 2023 with a talk as part of the Water mass changes and transformations in the Arctic Ocean: Physical Oceanography Community of Practice webinar. See the video here.
Tom gave a talk at the Atlantic overturning: new observations and challenges discussion meeting of the Royal Society, London. You can watch the talk here.
Dr. Atousa Saberi, a former graduate student in our group, has published a paper in the Journal of Physical Oceanography. The work is based on her PhD thesis and concerns monitoring of deep overflows, for example through the Faroe Bank Channel. The abstract reads: Deep ocean passages are advantageous sites for long term monitoring of […]
Team members Ali Siddiqui and Tom Haine have co-authored a paper entitled “Interactions between the Arctic Mediterranean and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation: A Review.” The paper appears in a special issue of Oceanography on The New Arctic Ocean.
Dr. Renske Gelderloos has published a paper on “Subinertial variability in four Southeast Greenland fjords in realistic numerical simulations.” The paper appears in the Journal of Geophysical Research (Oceans). And see this Research Spotlight in Eos!
Tom gave a Bjerknes seminar at the University of Bergen. He’s been a Bjerknes Fellow in 2022 and visiting wonderful Bergen. The talk’s title was: “Denmark Strait Overflow: The Greatest Waterfall you’ve Never Heard of”
Atousa Saberi has been awarded her PhD in Earth & Planetary Sciences. Atousa’s thesis title is “Kinematics and dynamics of oceanic overflows: Application to the Denmark Strait and Faroe Bank Channel.” A link to the pdf of her thesis is here (or will be available soon). Atousa is beginning a postdoc fellowship at NASA Goddard […]
Notes from E&PS Fluids II (Spring 2021 version) are now available. The notes cover theory of rotating shallow water systems, inertia gravity waves, and geostrophic adjustment. They include detailed theoretical solutions to adjustment in various geometries. They also include software (MATLAB, Julia) to check the solutions and compute numerical solutions in complex geometries. Several examples […]
