A new global marine environmental forecasting system will serve the public soon

01.10.2018

Since September 2016, a project entitled "Development of a Global High-resolution Marine Dynamic Environmental Forecasting System" has been funded by the "Program on Marine Environmental Security Guarantee" of the National Key Research and Development Program of China.

Based on publicly accessible data, this project will carry out supplementary observations and experiments; conduct further studies on multi-scale ocean mixing processes; improve the marine physical parameterization scheme; improve the numerical grid, algorithm technology, parallel technology, and coupling technology; and develop a combined global high-resolution ocean circulation model, tidal model, ocean wave model and wave-tide-flow coupling model for operational forecasting.

This project will also develop a pressure-coordinate ocean numerical model, a coupled ocean-atmosphere model, and other new technology from China's own research and development for future operational applications.

These models will be implemented to establish a global high-resolution ocean prediction system, and forecast products will be released, including temperature, salinity, velocity, and ocean wave and tidal currents with a horizontal resolution of 10 km.

The accuracy of these products will reach an advanced international level. The system will clearly identify ocean mesoscale phenomena, with a forecasting validity time of five to seven days.

Thus far, a series of results have been obtained including multi-source ocean observation datasets, the setup of models, vertical mixing parameterization and its mechanism, amongst others.

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.

Im Focus: Modular OLED light strips

At the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2019 (ISAL) in Darmstadt from September 23 to 25, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will present OLED light strips of any length with additional functionalities for the first time at booth no. 37.

Almost everyone is familiar with light strips for interior design. LED strips are available by the metre in DIY stores around the corner and are just as often...

Im Focus: The working of a molecular string phone

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Potsdam (both in Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada) have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. Surprisingly, the communication between the protein units is accomplished via a water-network akin to a string telephone. This communication is aligned with a ‘breathing’ motion, that is the expansion and contraction of the protein.

This time-lapse sequence of structures reveals dynamic motions as a fundamental element in the molecular foundations of biology.

Im Focus: Milestones on the Way to the Nuclear Clock

Two research teams have succeeded simultaneously in measuring the long-sought Thorium nuclear transition, which enables extremely precise nuclear clocks. TU Wien (Vienna) is part of both teams.

If you want to build the most accurate clock in the world, you need something that "ticks" very fast and extremely precise. In an atomic clock, electrons are...
