Observational and numerical studies continue on ocean analysis and prediction with various scales. Current interests include (1) optimal spectral decompostion (OSD) on ocean data analysis; (2) dynamics and thermodynamics of air-sea interfacial exchange processes; (3) ocean heat content and its impact on climate change; (4) thermodynamic feedback in tropics among radiation, clouds, precipitation, and ocean mixed layer and (5) coupled atmosphere-ocean modeling, and (6) model predictability.
