PS24A:
Multidisciplinary Upscale Effects of Mesoscale, Submesoscale, and Smaller-Scale Physical Processes I Posters

Session ID#: 85169

Session Description:
With an unprecedented capability of observing and simulating fine-scale (e.g., meso-, submeso-, or smaller-scale) processes which are typically unresolved in global, regional, or system models, it is becoming increasingly important to quantify the upscale effect of these processes in order to provide solutions to regional or climate issues (e.g., heat uptake, carbon uptake, sea level, acidification, deoxygenation), interdisciplinary issues (e.g., physical-biogeochemical interactions), cross-system issues (e.g., coastal-shelf-gyre connectivity, ocean-atmosphere-land-ice systems), and sustainability issues (e.g., environmental management, sustainable development, blue growth, marine usage). Therefore, we would like to bring together a broad range of observational, theoretical, and numerical studies related to accurate and efficient identification, quantification, parameterization, or utilization of the upscale effects of fine-scale processes on these crucial issues.
