Review article on “Surface currents in operational oceanography: Key applications, mechanisms, and methods”

Processes in the surface ocean and how they can be studied.
The illustration was made by Gunnar Follesø.

A new review article, published by the Journal of Operational Oceanography on March 23, 2020 and funded by CIRFA, presents an overview of dynamics, observation methods and modelling of upper ocean surface currents. The article is an attempt to unify knowledge in between various scientific communities, i.e. remote sensing, modellers, in-situ observationalists and theoreticians. In addition, applications for industries are discussed. By presenting a terminology for various aspects of surface currents, we aim to foster better exchange between these disciplines.

Congratulations and happy reading here!
