12.801 Large-scale Ocean Dynamics


Class Info

Applies fundamental principles of geophysical fluid dynamics to understand the general patterns of the ocean circulation and stratification. Includes the mid-latitude wind-driven circulation, the Southern Ocean circulation, and the global overturning circulation. Uses a combination of theory, numerical simulations, and observations to illustrate the concepts.

This class has 12.800 as a prerequisite.

12.801 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Ferrari.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 9-151.
