Cody Award Public Lecture: The Role Of Ocean Turbulence In Clima says
A prominent physical oceanographer who specializes in the circulation of the ocean and its interaction with the atmosphere and climate has been selected to receive the 2016 Robert L. and Bettie P. Cody Award in Ocean Sciences from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.

Raffaele Ferrari, a Scripps/UC San Diego alumnus and the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Oceanography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), will present the Cody Award public lecture at 3 p.m. on Oct. 12, 2016, in the Robert Paine Scripps Forum for Science, Society and the Environment (Scripps Seaside Forum), 8610 Kennel Way in La Jolla, Calif.

Admission is free (seating is available on a limited basis) for the lecture, “The Role of Ocean Turbulence in Climate.”

The 13th recipient of the Cody Award, Ferrari employs a mix of observations, theory, and numerical models to investigate motions in the sea that span scales from inches to thousands of miles. He is particularly interested in the complex interactions of these motions, which are crucial to maintaining the climate system. With colleagues, he has worked to improve scientists’ understanding and representation of these interactions in numerical models used to study climate change.
