PREFACE International Conference on Ocean, Climate and Ecosystems (Final Conference 2018)

Oral presentations
Welcome Session: Overview of PREFACE Research Core Themes

Session 1: Oceanic Processes – Oral

Session 1: Oceanic Processes – Poster

  • The variability of the Cape Boujdor upwelling and its relationship with the cape Blanc frontal zone (Hilmi et al)
  • An elevated turbulent mixing event caused by a near-inertial wave in the mixed layer (Dengler et al)
  • Mixed layer heat/salt budget and Equatorial Under-Current dynamics in the tropical Atlantic from a joint model-observations approach (Alory et al)
  • Seasonal variations of tidally generated internal waves in the eastern boundary upwelling system off Angola (Brandt et al)
