Multiscale Oceanic Processes and Air-Sea Interactions in the Kuroshio-Oyashio Extension Region: Observations and Modeling II Posters

Session ID#: 85094

Session Description:
The Kuroshio-Oyashio extension region is rich in multi-scale oceanic processes, featured by complex fronts, vigorous jets, energetic mesoscale and submesoscale eddies, as well as intense wind-driven internal waves. It is also a hotspot for air-sea interactions, anchoring the Pacific storm track and regulating the atmospheric circulation. Despite the crucial role of the Kuroshio-Oyashio extension in climate, there are many important questions remaining to be explored for this complex system, including but not limited to interactions among mean flows, eddies and internal waves and associated energy pathways, contributions of mesoscale/submesoscale eddies to heat and material transports, air-sea interactions at mesoscales/submesoscales and their impact on ocean circulation, storm tracks, atmospheric rivers and extreme rainfall, as well as the potential influence of multi-scale air-sea interactions on sub-seasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) climate prediction. This session seeks to understand these questions by virtue of in-situ observations and high-resolution numerical modeling.
