Oceans and Climate research is critical to the understanding
and predicting seasonal to decadal shifts in weather patterns
and for studying the dynamical processes in the global ocean/atmosphere
coupled system. AOML scientists monitor and study fluxuations
in currents of global oceans and their relationship to climatic
events ranging from US rainfall rates to hurricane development.
