Characterization of Global Internal Tides at High Horizontal ResolutionPI: Samuel Kelly (15-Jun-17). This project aims to improve the prediction and characterization of internal-tide sea surface displacements using global numerical simulations with 1/100 (~1 km horizontal resolution. The high resolution simulations are conducted using the linearized Coupled-mode ShallowWater model (CSW; Kelly et al., 2016), which can resolve small-scale internal tides that are absent in coarserresolution general circulation models (which typically have horizontal resolutions of 4-10 km). The increased resolution improves the representation of internal tides throughout the global ocean, however the largest improvements occur in regions where internal tides have short wavelengths, such as coastal seas, regions of complex bathymetry, and areas of energetic mesoscale circulation.
