Southern Ocean’s clockwise eddies are most productive

CLEX researchers found that counter-clockwise rotating eddies in the Southern Ocean mix the ocean deeper in winter, allowing more nutrients to enter their interiors, leading to higher productivity.  This work is important because eddy productivity plays a significant role in the exchange of carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere.

Research brief: Climate models under-represent tropical heating variations

This research demonstrates how cloud processes, steep mountains, tropical coastlines, the daily changes in solar insolation and planetary-scale waves work together to cause large variations in the tropical heating that drives global circulation patterns. Many of these effects are under-represented in global climate models.
