As part of the Future Seas project, this paper summarizes knowledge and perspectives on ocean literacy from a range of disciplines, including but not exclusive to marine biology, socio-ecology, philosophy, technology, psychology, oceanography and human health.

Climate recorded in seawater: A workshop on water-mass transformation analysis for ocean and climate studiesAugust 2, 2019 2:30 am Comments Off on Climate recorded in seawater: A workshop on water-mass transformation analysis for ocean and climate studies
In early February 2019 an international cohort of around 40 oceanographers, marine biogeochemists and climate modellers gathered at UNSW to discuss the use of the Water Mass Transformation (WMT) framework for studies of ocean physics, biogeochemistry and climate. The workshop was an initiative of several CLEX early career researchers and gained interest from a diverse international community.
In May this year, Maxime Marin with a team from CLEX took part in the International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE 2) aboard the RV Investigator. With good weather most of the way, it was an experience he recalls with great fondness.
This project defines a new PV that naturally generalizes the 1942 PV to multicomponent fluids such as these. We will assess the quality of its conservation law in both oceanographic and atmospheric datasets, comparing against those for previous definitions of PV.
In this project, the selected student will use a one-dimensional numerical ocean model to simulate and understand the physical and biogeochemical processes in the ocean near Australia. The student will utilise the long-term oceanographic measurements conducted at one of the National Reference Stations maintained by the Australian Integrated Marine Observing System (i.e., the Maria Island, the Port Hacking, and the Rottnest Island).
CLEX PhD student Earl Duran presented his work on the South Australian Current System at ACOMO 2018 held this year at the Shine Dome, Canberra, ACT.
