Prof. Fangli Qiao discussed about two high uncertainties for ocean circulation numerical model: ocean mixing and air-sea fluxes. Wave effect was introduced into the model to produce better results. There are three physical processes related to ocean waves: nonbreaking surface wave-induced vertical mixing, Stokes drift and sea spray.
Online and Onsite trainees listen carefully
Prof. Fangli Qiao introduced the Ocean Forecasting System, and by incorporating the three wave-related factors into the system, it provided much better prediction results for high intensity typhoon.
