Machine Learning of the Ocean Overturning Circulation

August 26, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

  Speaker: Aviv Solodoch, Ph.D. IDRE Scholar, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, University of California Los Angeles Location: Virtual (Click here for the recording)   Abstract: The meridional overturning circulation (MOC) in the oceans is a fundamental circulation pattern whereby surface water cool and densify in polar regions, and subsequently sink to great depths. These dense waters then spread horizontally at depth to cover virtually all deep ocean basins globally. The MOC has critical roles in the climate system, including influencing…
