Los procesos de submesoescala a debate

Entre el 23 y el 27 de mayo de 2016 se celebrará en Lieja (Bélgica) el 48th International Liége Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics, que este año tratará el tema "Submesoscale Processes: Mechanisms, Implications And New Frontiers".

Los temas que se trataran son:
  • Dynamics of frontal and mixed-layer instabilities (forced and unforced) and their implications.
  • Impact of winds and surface forcing on the mixed layer and submesoscale instabilities.
  • Surface boundary layer turbulence and submesoscale instabilities, large-eddy simulation and observations of surface waves, Langmuir circulations. Their implications for air-sea coupling.
  • Surface signatures of submesoscale dynamics from remotely sensed surface topography, roughness, and ocean color.
  • Mesoscale-submesoscale interactions, energy cascades, impact of submesoscales on larger/smaller scales
  • Physical-biological interactions — implications for biogeochemistry, productivity, export, ecosystem structure and diversity
  • Freshwater in the oceans — implications of submesoscale processes for sea ice, river plumes and freshwater dispersal
  • Coastal submesoscale dynamics — interaction with topography and the bottom boundary
  • Wave-front/eddy interactions Interaction of internal waves and submesoscale fronts/ eddies
  • Modelling issues related to multi-scale and multi-physics nature of the processes and in particular model nesting, unstructured grids and developments of new discretization schemes.
