On March 14, 2011, Birch Aquarium will host a Perspectives on Ocean Science Lecture: "Modeling Ocean Circulation in the Age of Supercomputers" presented by physical oceanographer, Paola Cessi.

The size and complexity of the oceans present a considerable challenge to those who want to mimic the movement of ocean water and understand ocean dynamics. Join Scripps Oceanography physical oceanographer Paola Cessi as she describes how a new age of supercomputers is allowing ocean modelers to begin investigating how the deep ocean responds to changes in the surface temperature and fresh water inputs from the highest latitudes of our planet.

Perspectives lectures are intended for a lay audience. Birch Aquarium admission and parking are included. Light refreshments will be served.

Past lectures air on UCSD-TV and are broadcast to more than 16 million viewers via satellite and cable television. Lectures also can be found on YouTube. For more information, visit: http://ucsd.tv/oceanscience
