The ocean’s much larger heat capacity acts as “memory” suppressing the atmosphere’s “high-frequency variability” (over time scales of weeks) while producing oceanic motions that vary over longer time scales. This paradigm aims to explain how low-frequency variability emerges in the ocean. But, recently, this paradigm has been challenged.

Navid Constantinou developed a new Julia package that provides solvers for geophysical fluid dynamics problems in periodic domains. It was also the first time he had been involved in an open peer-review process, and this experience was "mind changing".
CLEX researcher Navid Constantinou and collaborators developed GeophysicalFlows.jl, a Julia package that provides solvers for geophysical fluid dynamics problems in periodic domains.
Turning on a magnetic field may make fluids that conduct electricity behave more like honey than like water. This discovery may help explain a mystery of Jupiter's zonal winds, the alternating east-west jet streams, seen in photographs as colourful stripes.
CLEX researchers investigate the physics of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current to understand why increased wind stress doesn't lead to a more powerful current. It turns out the ocean floor plays a key role.
The energy of vortices in the Southern Ocean has increased over the past two decades due to an increase in the mean amplitude of the vortices rather than an increase in their number.
The proposed project involves generalising FourierFlows.jl so that it can run both on CPUs and on GPUs effortlessly. Running simulations on GPUs will enable up to 100 or even 200-times speedups.
A new framework for cyclone jet interaction improve our understanding of how the turbulent atmosphere is organised in coherent motions via the jet stream
One of the most striking features of Jupiter –-a gaseous giant with no solid surface-- is the coloured bands encircling the planet. These bands are strong zonal jets that flow in Jupiter’s atmosphere, similar in a way to the jets in Earth's atmosphere. Until recently, we had almost no direct observations beneath Jupiter's clouds.
