Jay McCreary

Summer School on:

Dynamics of the North Indian Ocean

National Institute of Oceanography

Dona Paula, Goa

June 17 – July 29, 2010


To provide a comprehensive introduction of ocean dynamics in the North Indian Ocean (NIO), that is, of the processes that maintain NIO circulations and cause their variability on all time scales.


1) Observations

2) Ocean models (OGCMs, LCS & layer models; model hierarchy)

3) Analytic and numerical methods

4) Processes (idealized solutions)

5) Applications (realistic solutions)

Course Notes

1) HIG Notes (NOTE: σ→ –σ)

2) Math Notes

3) Interior-ocean Notes

4) Equatorial-ocean Notes

5) Coastal-ocean Notes

Tomorrow, we begin to discuss ocean model. For the LCS model, please read HIG pp.1–17, INT Problem #2. For the 1½-layer model, please read INT Problem #1a.

Thoughts (1)

Only a start

At the end of this course, you will have learned a lot about NIO dynamics. But, it is impossible to cover everythingabout the NIO in this short time. So, the talks are intended to provide introductions to various topics of NIO dynamics, which will then make it easier for you to study further.


Some mathematical techniques are needed to obtain analytical solutions. Several mathematical lectures are included to introduce the techniques that are used.

Thoughts (2)

Fast pace

Given the time limits of the course, we will be going at a fast pace. So, please keep up with the material as best as you can. Also, please do not get discouraged, as ideas introduced earlier in the course will be reinforced later.


Although these talks arecalled “lectures,” they are meant to be “discussions.” So, ask questions and bring up issues at any timeduring the presentations.


I often make mistakes, both in speaking and (likely) in the slides. Please bring any errors to our attention as soon as you notice them.
