Orsi, Alejandro individual record

My research focuses on studying ocean circulation and transports; ocean climate and its variability from seasonal to decadal scales; convection near continental margins and ocean interior, deep overflows; interpretation of tracer distributions on mesoscale to global, direct current measurements; development of hydrographic database and online atlas; and Ocean Observing Systems: GOOS, SOOS.
