Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Head: Prof. Grigoriy Reznik
Department of large-scale processes and climate
The main directions of study:
Ocean waves, eddies and large-scale currents responsible for climate and weather formation on the Earth.
Western boundary currents dynamics (the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio, etc.).
Various types of wave motions in the ocean and the atmosphere.
Synoptic eddies and Rossby waves determining the ocean and the atmosphere dynamics; a number of the results have also been applied to plasma physics and astrophysics.
