The Role of the Oceans in Climate

TUE, JUN 16, 2015 (40:43)

Learn about the complex and vital relationship between the oceans and Earth’s climate. Researchers at Woods Hole describe how they gather climate and monsoon data via remote sensors in the oceans, and find out more about how international teams work on research cruises.

+ BIO: Amala Mahadevan, Ph.D.

Amala Mahadevan is a leading researcher in the fields of physical oceanography and climate, the oceanic carbon cycle, and biogeochemical distributions. Dr. Mahadevan and members of her WHOI lab have developed advanced models and analytics to investigate physical ocean processes and their implications for the productivity and distribution of phytoplankton, and the transport and mixing of properties. She has developed a non-hydrostatic ocean model suited to modeling limited domains in order to capture meso- and sub-mesoscale phenomena.
