Southwest Pacific reveals some of its secrets

14 septiembre 2015

The Southwest Pacific ocean and the strong currents that travel through it play a major role in the world’s climate. A research program has allowed a great many in situ observations to be collected which were previously lacking. In parallel, scientists from around fifteen international laboratories have developed high-resolution digital models. This work has led to significant advances in our understanding of the dynamics of this ocean and its influence on the climate.
