We recently completed a non-hydrostatic version of ROMS. It is currently in a beta testing phase but will be publicly available this fall.

In celebration of this fact we are organizing a workshop on the topic of small scale, non-hydrostatic ocean modeling in Brest, France, October 15-17, 2018.

This workshop aims to advance our collective understanding of oceanic processes at scales of O(10m-1 km), their mechanistic functioning, and relevance for larger scales and the budget of the climate system. These scales span the range between submesoscale dynamics and isotropic boundary layer turbulence.The focus of the workshop is on numerical modeling of these scales, both in the surface layer as well as the bottom boundary layer.

Despite many recent advances, a gap still exists between the capabilities to model realistic ocean flow on the one hand, and LES of the turbulent boundary layer on the other hand. We invite participants and contributions to novel numerical approaches to bridge this gap in numerical modeling as well as applied studies that target ocean dynamics and its implications..

We trust that it will be an exciting event and hope to see many people attend. The workshop will be followed by a two days masterclass, aimed at graduate students and postdocs. The website is now open to abstract submission and registration. The deadline for abstracts is September 2, 2018.


Please share this information within your department and with anyone you think that may be interested.

many thanks, and best regards,

Guillaume Roullet and Jeroen Molemaker
