An Ocean-Atmosphere Simulation for Studying Air-Sea Interactions

Abstract: During the past few years the Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) modeling groups have produced, respectively, global atmosphere-only and ocean-only simulations with km-scale grid spacing. These simulations have proved invaluable for process studies and for the development of satellite and in-situ sampling strategies. Nevertheless, a key limitation of these “nature” simulations is the lack of interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere, w…
