Data Center Description
Research in physical oceanography attacks some of
the most challenging problems in classical physics and fluid dynamics. It is at
a stage of rapid evolution (building upon vastly improved observing tools,
increased computing power, and new analytical understanding). Major
cooperative research efforts are dramatically changing our understanding of the
dynamics of the ocean and atmosphere-ocean coupling. The results of these
studies will contribute to solving a yet broader range of oceanic, geological,
chemical, biological, engineering, and societal problems. The scope of our
interests is global.
