Western Boundary Time Series Cruise Extends Decades-Long Data Series
Research has shown that changes in the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) are correlated with variations in socially important environmental conditions such as coastal sea levels, surface air temperature and precipitation patterns, and extreme weather dynamics such as hurricane intensification.



Ocean dynamics played key role in Antarctic sea ice changes during past decades
AOML Oceanographer Sang-Ki Lee and his colleagues used an ocean and sea-ice coupled model to show that ocean dynamics played key role in Antarctica's sea ice changes during past decades. This research* was selected as an Editor's highlight for the Journal of Geophysical Research.


Wind-driven ocean influences on the contrasting sea-ice trends around West Antarctica.
Advances in the applications of surface drifters.
Contrasting patterns of phytoplankton pigments and chemotaxonomic groups along 30°S in the subtropical South Atlantic.
A meridional dipole in pre-monsoon Bay of Bengal tropical cyclone activity induced by ENSO.
An improved surface velocity climatology for the global ocean from drifter observations.
