Modelling of Large-Scale Circulation in Atmosphere and Ocean, 7.5 credits

About the course

The course deals with flow phenomena of central importance in meteorology and oceanography. These are studied both theoretically and with a numerical simulation model used for independent projects. The topics examinedtopics examined include geostrophic adjustment, Rossby waves, Kelvin waves (with applications to coastal upwelling and El Nino), stability of barotropic flow, as well as large-scale wind-driven ocean circulation.
