Alexey Mishonov, ESSIC/CICS-MD Associate Research Scientist, and James Reagan, ESSIC/CICS-MD Senior Faculty Specialist, recently published an article titled “Eddy-Resolving In Situ Ocean Climatologies of Temperature and Salinity in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean” in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans.
The article discusses the development of a new decadally averaged high-resolution (1/10°) ocean climatology for the Northwest Atlantic. This high-resolution climatology is capable of mapping mesoscale activity– such as the meandering of jet streams, eddies, large vortexes, and filaments– that has historically been unattainable due to limited observations. It will also be used to assess ocean climate change and decadal variability in this region.
Mishonov is a researcher with extensive experience in various fields of oceanography, including ocean color, water transmissivity, particulate organic carbon research, and oceanographic data management and analysis.
Reagan is affiliated with NOAA and the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) where his current research focuses on attaining a better understanding of salinity/freshwater variability in the global ocean, which could shed new light on the hydrological cycle.
