Overview

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 177.

This monograph is the first to survey progress in realistic simulation in a strongly eddying regime made possible by recent increases in computational capability. Its contributors comprise the leading researchers in this important and constantly evolving field.

Divided into three parts

  • Oceanographic Processes and Regimes: Fundamental Questions
  • Ocean Dynamics and State: From Regional to Global Scale, and
  • Modeling at the Mesoscale: State of the Art and Future Directions

The volume details important advances in physical oceanography based on eddy resolving ocean modeling. It captures the state of the art and discusses issues that ocean modelers must consider in order to effectively contribute to advancing current knowledge, from subtleties of the underlying fluid dynamical equations to meaningful comparison with oceanographic observations and leading-edge model development. It summarizes many of the important results which have emerged from ocean modeling in an eddying regime, for those interested broadly in the physical science. More technical topics are intended to address the concerns of those actively working in the field.
