Some novel approaches for parameterizing mesoscale eddies
This talk focuses on some new approaches for parameterizing mesoscale eddy effects for use in non-eddy-resolving ocean circulation models. Specific example of eddy-rich eastward jet extensions of western boundary currents and their adjacent recirculation zones will be considered. Explicit and implicit stochastic modelling, eddy amplification, as well as dynamics-based and data-driven points of view will be reviewed.
