Members of Tandon Lab present at Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020

Professor Amit Tandon and the rest of the lab had strong participation in the recently concluded Ocean Sciences Meeting at San Diego, CA. Spread across 6 days in mid-February, 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/posters given by the lab members:

a) Monsoon Intra-seasonal oscillations in the Bay of Bengal: Amit Tandon and co-authors

b) Submesoscale temperature inversions in the Bay of Bengal during the winter monsoon: Sanjiv Ramachandran, Amit Tandon and co-authors

c) Atmospheric Cold Pools in the Bay of Bengal: A Fuzzy Logic Approach: Jared Buckley, Amit Tandon

d) Long Wave Measurement Corrections for the OMNI Buoy Network: Jossia Joseph, Amit Tandon and other co-authors

e) The 2018 Monsoon Onset from Ship-based Measurements across the Air-Sea Interface: Emily Shroyer, Amit Tandon and co-authors

f) Basin-scale Diapycnal Mixing Rates in the Bay of Bengal Inferred from Freshwater Balance: J Sree Lekha, Debasis Sengupta, Emily Shroyer and Amit Tandon.

g) Nutrient Supply Caused by Submesoscale and Microscale Mixing Processes in the Upstream Kuroshio: Takeyoshi Nagai, Amit Tandon and co-authors

h) The Barreirinhas Eddies Conundrum: Why Are These Super Anticyclones at Low Latitudes so Long-lived: Iury T Simoes-Sousa and co-authors

i) On the Role of Turbulent Mixing Produced by Vertical Shear Between the Brazil Current and the Intermediate Western Boundary Current by Caue Lazaneo and co-authors

j) On the variability of Arabian Sea mixing and its energetics: Shikha Singh and co-authors

k) On the Sea Surface Temperature variability and mesoscale dispersion in the Bay of Bengal during 2015 and 2019 monsoon as tracked by drifters: Siddhant Kerhalkar, Amit Tandon and co-authors

Jared Buckley successfully defends his dissertation

Congratulations to Jared Buckley, who successfully defended his PhD Thesis: “A new model of satellite-derived near-surface currents, the impact of lateral advection and a fuzzy logic approach to observing cold pools in the Bay of Bengal” on December 18, 2019.

Tandon Lab visits Brown University

Tandon Lab visited Brown University on November 21, 2019 for a joint group meeting with Fox-Kemper Research group. This joint meeting involved knowing about the work being carried out by the members of each group which was followed by a quick brain-storming session.

Tandon Lab conducts the “Air-Sea Interaction Day” at UMass Dartmouth.

Tandon Lab conducted an Air-Sea Interaction Day on October 16, 2019 and hosted Prof Debasis Sengupta (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore), Dr Robert Weller (WHOI), Dr Amala Mahadevan (WHOI) and Dr R Venkatesan (NIOT and Fulbright Flex awardee, UMassD) at SMAST, UMass Dartmouth. There were talks given by the members as well as guests followed by a long meeting about some of the future work.

Professor Amit Tandon presents a seminar at GSO, University of Rhode Island

Prof Tandon presented a seminar on “Sub-mesoscale processes in the Bay of Bengal” at Graduate School of Oceanography at University of Rhode Island, Narragansett, RI on October 04, 2019. The seminar was attended by some of the members of the lab as well. This seminar was also followed by a short visit to the aquarium situated at GSO, URI
