Further investigate the ocean, new ideas for the atmosphere
In two projects our scientists will focus on the ocean, i.a. quantifying the generation and propagation of internal waves and extending as well as validating gravity wave closures for the ocean. A third project explores a new parameterisation concepts for gravity waves in the atmosphere.
Specific research questions in Area W are:
- What are dominant mechanisms and processes for gravity waves in the atmosphere and how can we better parameterise them?
- How do gravity waves propagate and dissipate in the ocean and how can we better parameterise the wave effects on the ocean circulation?
