Some videos of my simulations with the global high resolution ocean circulation and tide model (MPI-OM with tides) (Müller et al. Geophys. Res Lett. 2012).

I acknowledge the possibility of performing these simulations at the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ) and using the infrastructure of the German STORM project.
