HPC Platform used: Hermit of HLRS

Local Project ID: PP13081679

Using the computing capabilities of HLRS system Hermit, a team of scientists used the Community Earth System Model (CESM) with a strongly eddying ocean submodel to study the presence of ocean eddies on the sensitivity of the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) in the Atlantic Ocean to the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) freshwater anomalies.
