Oceans in a Warming Climate

The oceans are a key component of the climate system. In this talk, Professor Zanna will discuss the role of ocean physics in storing and redistributing the excess heat from anthropogenic emissions. Dr. Zanna will focus on patterns of sea level, which result from this redistribution of excess heat, and the uncertainty associated with future projections of regional sea level. She will describe how combining machine learning and physics may improve numerical climate simulations and associated projections of climate change, including patterns of sea level rise.
