Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): The Regional Oceanography Laboratory (ROL) has several directions of scientific studies currently made by the ROL are as follows: 1. Stochastic modeling of the oceanographic processes’ effects on biological productivity of Russian seas; 2 Selecting and testing of hydro-meteorological predictors for fishery forecasts 3.Conjugation of the hydro-meteorological fields as an indicator of variability of the oceanographic conditions in near-coastal sea areas (the case studies for the North-West Pacific); 4 Oceanic response to the large-scale atmospheric disturbances; 5.Topographical Rossby waves and shelf waves. Variability of quasi-geostrophic waves is studied by using the altimeter data on sea surface heights, in particular those obtained from satellites "Topex/Poseidon", "ERS1" and "ERS2", and by surveying in “Megapolygon” area of the North-Western Pacific. The results of investigations made during the said years are summarized in more than 800 publications, including monographs and thematic collections.
Expertise offered Survey of the available satellite oceanographic information in visible, infrared and microwave regions Construction of original arrays of satellite oceanographic information (altimetry, sea surface temperature, wind driven waves, colors, chlorophyll concentrations Development of dynamical-stochastic approach to satellite information processing in different regions of electromagnetic spectra Analysis of the space-time variability of oceanographical fields, detection of low frequency Rossby waves, studies of the sea surface anomalies Wavelet and fractal analysis of the ocean satellite data . Data assimilation in biotic and hydrodynamical modelling Estimation of the role of advection, diffusion in biotic transformations and chlorophyll concentration fields Numerical experiments with hydrodynamical and biotic models to interpret mechanisms of space-time variability of biotic and hydrological fields
