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.
