Lead Researcher: Dr Pavel Berloff

My research focuses on understanding fundamental physical processes in the ocean, particularly those that involve ocean turbulence and impact climate, and in developing mathematical models of these processes.

Particular topics include:

  • role of the ocean in maintaining the global climate and origins of the interannual-to-interdecadal variability observed at midlatitudes
  • dynamics of mesoscale oceanic eddies and their interactions with large-scale flows
  • mathematical modelling of unresolved small-scale processes
  • transport and mixing by oceanic eddies and coherent vortices
  • understanding multiple alternating jets of the oceanic circulation.
