1 The challenge ahead: Ocean Predictions in the Arctic Region Lars Petter Røed * Presented at the OPNet Workshop May 2008, Geilo, Norway * Also affiliated with Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway

2 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #2OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge one: The ocean is big Greenland Norway France

3 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #3OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge two: The eddies are small

4 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #4OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge two: The eddies are small

5 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #5OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge one Rossby radius of deformation is small –Range from 2 to 15 km Current computer capacity constrains resolution –Non-eddy resolving –Eddies must be parameterized Nesting of smaller areas necessary to capture eddy growth

6 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #6OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Sample: Non eddy resolving model SST and ice concentration

7 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #7OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Observation (OSI-SAF)

8 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #8OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Eye validation

9 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #9OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge two Nesting conditions –Two way nesting Assimilation –Observations –Methods

10 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #10OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Challenge two

11 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #11OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008

12 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #12OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Similar eddy structures?

13 Norwegian Meteorological Institute met.no LPR #13OPNet, Geilo, May May 2008 Conclusions Eddies are small scale, elusive features They spawn in one place, grow as they are advected and their effect is felt in a third place Energy analyses –Useful to enhance our understanding –Not practical as a predictive tool in its present form
