Atlantic and Southern Ocean circulation.
Large Eddy Simulation (LES) studies of turbulent flow around Autonomous Underwater Vehicles.
Quantification of the biases in ship-based flux and mean meteorological measurements caused by flow distortion over of the ship.
Turbulence measurements made using ocean gliders.
Alex Cattrell: Safer ship routing informed by field studies, laboratory experiments, and numerical modelling of ship interactions with rouge waves.
NEXUSS PhD project available: A coupled CFD and observational approach to improve measurements of ocean turbulence from gliders. Deadline: 26 June 2017
ACSIS (North Atlantic Climate System: Integrated Study)
Explain and predict changes in the North Atlantic Climate System
ORCHESTRA (Ocean Regulation of Climate through Heat and Carbon Sequestration and Transports)
Improve our ability to measure, understand and predict the circulation of the Southern Ocean and its role in the global climate
BLUE ACTION: ARCTIC IMPACT ON WEATHER AND CLIMATE
Blue-Action will provide fundamental and empirically-grounded, executable science that quantifies and explains the role of a changing Arctic in increasing predictive capability of weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere.
Monitoring the AMOC at 26N (RAPID-AMOC)
Monitoring changes in the AMOC is important for understanding decadal climate variability and change.
The RAPID array across the Atlantic at 26°N has now observed the AMOC continuously for 11.5 years.
MASSMO2: Computational Fluid Dynamics studies of the flows around autonomous underwater vehicles
The potential applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the study of fluid flow around autonomous underwater vehicles is investigated.
Arctic Cloud Summer Experiment (ACSE)
A collaboration between Leeds, the University of Stockholm and NOAA-CIRES - ACSE aims to study the response of Arctic boundary layer cloud to changes in surface conditions in the Arctic Ocean.
