Prof Amit Tandon and the rest of the lab had strong participation in the recently concluded Ocean Sciences Meeting-2022. Originally planned to be in Hawaii, the pandemic forced the organizers (AGU, ASLO, TOS) to make the event virtual. Spread across 7 days in February and March, it was definitely a good experience for the group to be a part of this event by presenting their published/on-going work as well as attending lots of other talks from a plethora of topics being discussed. Following are the details of the talks either given by the lab members or with Prof Tandon as a co-author.
1) Topographically-Generated Submesoscale Shear Instabilities associated with Brazil Current Meanders: Caique Luko
2) Diurnal Warm Layers in the Bay of Bengal during Monsoon 2019: Siddhant Kerhalkar
3) Atmospheric Cold Pools in the Bay of Bengal: Iury T.Simoes Sousa
4) Dynamics of a Baroclinically-unstable Meander and its Ecological Impacts: Filipe Pereira
5) Validation of a Hybrid Co-ordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) in the Eastern Tropical North Pacific Oxygen Deficient Zone: Valentina Guinta
6) Next steps toward understanding Arabian Sea dynamics and ecology: Amit Tandon
7) Energy Exchange Between Internal Gravity Waves and Balanced Flow: Wave Action Conservation and a pathway to Dissipation: Eric Kunze (with Amit Tandon)
8) Reabsorption of Lee-Wave Energy in Bottom-Intensified Currents: Yue Wu (with Amit Tandon)
9) Incorporating irreversible fluxes in K-e mixing model for Bay of Bengal: Shikha Singh (with Amit Tandon)
10) Characteristics and Variability of Air-sea fluxes in Bay of Bengal from OMNI Buoy Measurements: Jossia Joseph (with Amit Tandon)
11) Wave Induced Stokes Drift from a decade of Moored Buoy Observations in the Bay of Bengal: Kalyani M (with Amit Tandon).
Along with these 11 talks, Prof Tandon was also a session chair for the session “PL04- Indian Ocean circulation and its impact on air-sea interactions, biogeochemistry and ecology”.
