ATOC 5061, Fall 2011
ATOC 5061: Dynamics of Oceans
Fall 2011 will focus on turbulence, from small scale to large-scale rotating, stratified turbulence of the oceans, but still using simple numerical models to illustrate. Fall 2010, focused more on ocean waves, instabilities, eddies, and wave-mean interaction, but still using simple numerical models to illustrate. In Spring 2009, the focus was mainly on ocean models, doing some hands-on numerical modeling of simple models, waves, and shallow water equations, as well as discussing toy and analytic models.You can access the syllabus, private files, and class notes.
