We are pleased to announce the 2017 International Workshop on ENSO complexity at the IBS Center for Climate Physics at Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea.
The workshop will be held from October 16th - 20th, 2017.
The coastal circulation off Western Australia differs from most other eastern boundary current systems in that its main current, the Leeuwin Current (LC) is directed southward towards the pole. In my presentation, I will discuss simple analytic models to explain the unique structure of the Leeuwin Current system. In these models, the poleward LC occurs because of interaction of the meridional surface density gradient in the Southern Indian Ocean with the continental slope.
