Working Group 7: Modeling of the subarctic North Pacific circulation
  • Acronym: WG 7
  • Parent Committee: POC
  • Term: Oct. 1993 - Oct. 1995
  • Co-Chairs:
    Masahiro Endoh (Japan)
    Paul H. LeBlond (Canada)
Terms of Reference
  1. Review the status of present physical modeling efforts on the subartic North Pacific circulation and identify the gaps and problem areas;
  2. Identify the kinds of observations and other information needed to improve circulation models;
  3. Identify what kinds of knowledge of the related physical processes and of local ocean dynamics (such as in marginal seas) are needed to improve the circulation models;
  4. Identify how the incompleteness of the present physical model of the subarctic North Pacific influences other modeling efforts such as the global climate, ecosystems, material transport, etc.;
