Ocean Circulation and Climate Dynamics

TROPAC01

Tropical Pacific Nest at 1/10°

Global Bathymetry (based on BlueMarble by the NASA Visible Earth Project). Boundaries of the AGRIF nest are shown as yellow frame.

The tropical ocean with its zonal current systems and phenomena is a crucial region for the inter-hemispheric water mass exchange. The currents also have a strong impact on the biogeochemical processes there, particularly with regard to the oxygen minimum zones in the eastern tropical basin. To explore the mechanisms and variability in this regard, a 1/10° AGRIF nest is embedded into a global 1/4° model.

Similar is done for the tropical Atlantic (TRATL01).
