  Information - OS0 Open Session on Global Ocean Circulation (including Fridtjof Nansen Medal Lecture)

Event Information
For this open session contributions concerning all aspects of the global
ocean circulation are welcome, including studies of regional-scale processes
that impact the basin and global scales. Additionally, we encourage
submissions that do not fit any or several of the special sessions.

One particular aspect of the global ocean circulation that we would like to
emphasize this year is that of mechanisms of external and internal forcing
of variability in the deep ocean circulation. Topics include (but are not
limited to) observational and modelling evidence for internal modes of
variability in the deep ocean circulation, boundary current response to
local or remote atmospheric forcing, the role of topography, the occurrence
of thresholds in the deep ocean circulation, and the existence of an
anthropogenic footprint in the variability of the circulation.
