.Southern Ocean heat balance is important to understand because it affects global climate and land ice losses on Antarctica, modifies water masses along the ACC, and influences
Speaker: Dr. Christopher Chapman
The meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the Southern Ocean is a fundamental component of the climate system.
The ocean has absorbed more than 90% of the excess energy in the climate system over the past 50 years.

How far downriver should waste-water be released to avoid contaminating an upstream water source? Using a shallow-water description of inertia-dominated, buoyancy-driven flow,
Speaker: Dr. Kraig Winters, Scripps Inst. of Oceanography and Dept. of Mech. and Aerospace Engr., UCSD
We consider stratified flows over isolated obstacles in the limit of strong stratification and tall obstacles for which the total kinetic energy of the flow is insufficient to d
