Oceanography Section


Our Mission

NCAR’s Oceanography Section (OS) seeks to understand ocean processes and their importance to climate and society. Areas of focus include: global, regional, and coastal ocean dynamics across scales; formulation and application of the CESM ocean component; the role of the oceans in Earth system variability, predictions, and projections across time scales; ocean biogeochemical and ecosystem modeling;  interactions with other components of the Earth system; ocean and climate data assimilation; and ocean modeling for human impacts and marine ecosystem and resource management applications.
