Physical Oceanography
at Dalhousie University
Physical Oceanography is the study of the dynamics and thermodynamics of the sea. Our interests range widely. The phenomena under study include mixing, convection, nearshore dynamics, sediment dynamics, internal/external waves, flows from harbour scale to global scale, and the climate system. The applications range from general topics in geophysical fluid dynamics to modern techniques of data-assimilation and operational oceanography, and from modelling techniques to acoustical oceanography. Much of the work is highly collaborative, both across fields and across research institutes. Our teaching covers not just Physical Oceanography, but also Statistics, Mathemematics and Physics, at both graduate and undergraduate levels.

Physical Oceanography Most oceanographers try to think of the world's oceans as one giant system, collectively known as the global ocean. But before space travel and the inventio of satellites, it was very hard to actually observe the oceans on such a large scale. Pictures of the global ocean from space have given oceanographers important information about ocean currents, temperatures, and other properties. Satellites collect information around the clock and feed it back to earth and individual laboratories and classrooms in real time. This innovation has revolutionized oceanography and given researchers important information about weather and climate, circulation, and environmental problems, such as global warming, global circulation, the world's fisheries decline, and harmful algal blooms. Perhaps more than any other group of oceanographers, physical oceanographers have benefited from satellite technology. Because they study the movement of the oceans and the forces that cause motion, such as winds, waves, and tides, they must look at the ocean from a "big picture" perspective. Shipboard measurements and the development of instruments such as computer programmable buoys that can be left at sea for long periods of time were huge advances for the field of physical oceanography and continue to be important tools, but satellites offer perspectives that early oceanographers may never have dreamed of. Imagine the discoveries Benjamin Franklin, the first person to plot the course of the Gulf Stream, could have made if he'd had access to satellite data!

The growing interest in coastal ocean processes during the last decade has accentuated the need for laboratory facilities where various aspects of the coastal ocean environment can be simulated under controlled conditions. The 17-meter flume, a re-circulating, temperature-controlled, seawater channel constructed in the Coastal Research Laboratory at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, was specifically designed for studies of biogeochemical and fluid-dynamical questions which can be adequately addressed in a steady-flow environment. Part I of a two-part report, this technical report provides comprehensive descriptions of the flume and associated instrumentation, examples of flume settings to achieve selected flow regimes, and detailed instructions for the use of this facility.

8. Research In Physical Oceanography
Physical Oceanography. A central intellectual challenge of physical oceanographyis understanding the range of space and time scales that are involved.
Physical Oceanography Physical Oceanography deals with observations of the properties and movement of ocean water and the understanding and modeling of these natural phenomena using fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, applied physics, and mathematics. In other words, physical oceanography concerns how water moves and mixes in the ocean, changes its properties, and carries and distributes dissolved chemicals, nutrients, plankton, and pollutants. The discipline is intertwined with atmospheric and climate studies. A goal of all these fields is understanding the energy and momentum transfer through the seas and across their boundaries. A central intellectual challenge of physical oceanography is understanding the range of space and time scales that are involved. For example, it is difficult to imagine that the same wind that blows leaves across a lawn is responsible for driving the surface circulation of the Pacific Ocean, yet it is true. Centimeter capillary ripples roughen the sea surface so that the atmosphere can grip the water and produce wind waves. Some of these waves propagate to distant beaches where they break as surf, and transport sediment. But surface waves also deposit momentum into the deeper ocean, driving ocean gyres within which water spirals for decades. On even longer times scales- -centuries to millennia- -the entire stratification of the ocean changes in response to cooling at the poles and evaporation in the tropics. To observe these processes physical oceanographers use a combination of acoustical, optical, satellite, and in situ measurements. Recent technological advances, such as autonomous sampling and acoustic tomography, are producing an increasingly detailed picture of the three-dimensional ocean circulation. Because of these new technologies, oceanic processes that are now seen dimly, or not at all, will be uncovered. Understanding this exciting new data with powerful computer models, fluid mechanics, and modern descriptive tools is the future of physical oceanography.

Physical oceanography
The research activities in physical oceanography at are based on results from ocean circulation models and observations of the sea state. Model development is focused on the processes that control the physical state of the ocean, the processes related to the exchange of energy between the ocean and the atmosphere, data assimilation and numerical methods for solving the governing mathematical equations. The numerical models that we use include the ocean circulation models MI-POM and MICOM , and the ice model MI-IM Snapshot of the surface salinity along the coast of Southern Norway. Oceanographic research and development is directed toward three main themes: Ocean forecasting (routine forecasting of ocean parameters) Climate modelling (including coupling of atmosphere, ocean and ice) Environmental modelling and forecasting For ocean forecasting , the institute seeks to extend the present-day official operational services - sea level, waves and oil drift - to include forecasts of currents (speed and direction), hydrography (temperature and salinity), sea ice (drift, thickness, distribution and concentration) and drift of floating objects (ships, rafts, persons, etc.). An important prerequisite for accurate forecasting is good analyses. Therefore, one of our objectives is to develop suitable data assimilation schemes for operational ocean models, and further to quantify the accuracy of the forecasts through routine validation.

Exploring Physical Oceanography
Physical oceanography requires a basic understanding of the mechanics of fluids.
Oceans are influenced by many physical features, such as waves, currents, and tides. Waves are produced by wind, sea craft, earth movements, and exhibit physical features such as height, wave length, crest and troughs. Height and wave- length are determined by wind speed, water surface distance, storm duration(s) and water depth.
Currents exist as surface currents and vertical currents. Surface currents are produced by wind and can be either cold such as the Labrador current or warm like the gulf stream. Vertical currents are produced by water density difference, but both types influence our climate.

    The primary mission of the Physical Oceanography Division (PhOD) of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) is to provide and interpret oceanographic data by conducting research relevant to the following NOAA Strategic Goals:
  • Predict and Assess Decadal to Centennial Climate Change
  • Implement Seasonal to Interannual Climate Forecasts
  • Sustain Healthy Coastal Ecosystems Data are provided by scientific research cruises, large scale and regional observing systems, and satellites. Sea-going activity includes "blue water" research cruises conducted globally and coastal water research cruises conducted in U.S. waters. Ocean observing systems operated by NOAA's Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), housed in PhOD, provide data from research and merchant ships, surface drifters and profiling floats to meet forecast and stewardship needs. Satellite observations are also an important tool used by PhOD scientists and provide observations on the basin and global scale. The resulting data are interpreted using empirical and statistical methods and numerical models as tools to understand dynamical processes in the ocean/atmosphere coupled system and coastal areas. The PhOD Division has a staff of approximately 35 research scientists and technicians. The Staff is supplemented by 12 Scientists and technicians through the
