Impact of eddies on the ocean energy generation, conversion and dissipation
My research interest is to understand the impact of eddy activities in the ocean. The goal contains three parts: 1) to understand and quantify the importance of the main processes behind the forcing of energy conversion and dissipation in an isolated cyclonic/anticyclonic surface-intensified eddy. 2) to quantify the oceanic LEC in a realistic eddy-resolving simulation over the period 1980-2017. 3)adjoint data assimilation into an eddy-resolving model and to constrain the eddy activity and assess its relevance to the energy budgets.
