T he ocean is in constant motion, with water circulating within and flowing between basins. As the water moves around, it caries heat and nutrients, as well as planktonic organisms and litter around the globe.
The most natural way to study the pathways of water and the connections between ocean basins is using particle trajectories. The trajectories can come from either computing of virtual floats in high-resolution ocean models.
In this seminar, I’ll give an overview of some recent work with Lagrangian particles. I will introduce our new open-source framework. I will show applications to marine microbiology and ecology, palaeoclimatology and plastic
