Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics

Published 29 April, 2024

Atmosphere and ocean dynamics is the study of the laws of motion of atmospheric and oceanic circulations, including the formation, evolution, and interactions among multi-scale processes occurring within them. This field of study is essential for understanding the atmospheric and oceanic sciences, as well as climate change.

In recent years, notable advancements have been achieved in the fundamentals of geophysical fluid dynamics and dynamic predictability, and many aspects of atmosphere and ocean dynamics are characterised by new changes under global warming. Moreover, with the continuous increase in observational data from various components of the Earth system, substantial advancements in numerical modelling, and the rapid rise in applications of artificial intelligence (AI) concepts and new technologies, the field of atmosphere and ocean dynamics is gaining fresh momentum and encountering new opportunities.

Within this context, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Letters (AOSL) is organising a special issue on “Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics”, and warmly welcomes submissions focusing on new research in the field. We hope this special issue will provide an opportunity for scientists to disseminate their recent research progress in the field of Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics.

Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamental theory of geophysical fluid dynamics;
  • Predictability of atmosphere and ocean dynamics;
  • Climate dynamics under global warming;
  • Ocean circulation dynamics from the sub-mesoscale to planetary scale;
  • Earth system dynamics and abrupt climate change;
  • Mathematical and physical basis of numerical modelling of the Earth system;
  • Observation, theory, and modelling of the sea (land, ice)–air boundary layer;
  • Application of AI in Earth system dynamics;
  • Other related basic theoretical studies.

Important Deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 31st Dec 2024

Submission Instructions:
