Simulation results of the North Atlantic region of Europe with the NEMO ocean modelling code. The flowfield corresponds to sea surface velocity and grid resolution is 12km. Large-scale, interannual and decadal variability of the midlatitude ocean is a significant aspect of the global climate variability. Through their nonlinear interactions, mesoscale (10-100 km) eddies can not only maintain the mean circulation but also drive the observed variability. Computational modelling plays a big role in revealing new mechanisms of this variability and connection with Earth's dynamics such as Chandler Wobble. Ultimately this is important for understanding and prediction of the climate change.
