Surprisingly little quantitative knowledge on the role of ocean eddies in climate is available – also when it comes to their changes and impact in a warming climate. This knowledge gap is largely due to the fact that ocean eddies –the weather of the ocean– are not adequately represented in current climate models. 

 

EERIE will advance our understanding based on climate change simulations in which ocean eddies are explicitly represented by the laws of physics. In order to deliver these challenging high-resolution simulations, scientists will need to exploit the biggest super computers in Europe – in the most energy efficient way.
