What Climate Models Need to Know About the Sub-Polar Oceans

Mary Louise Timmermans introduces Peter Rhines who shares his latest field observations from the subpolar Atlantic and how they inform the efforts of climate modelers. Peter visits us from the University of Washington’s School of Oceanography.  His research interests include: High latitude climate: field observations in the subpolar Atlantic; Geophysical Fluid Dynamics laboratory, theory and observations of waves and circulation; atmospheric dynamics; oceanic eddies and their relation with the general circulation; teaching environmental science and its relationships with human activity. - See more at: http://climate.yale.edu/event/tba-0#sthash.lGWMvU3n.dpuf
