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 Intensive use of the satellite data (altimetry and geostrophic currents, sea surface temperature, chlorophyll concentration, photo synthesis radiation) for studies of influence of oceanographic factors on bio productivity in different regions of World Ocean. To do this our original methods of dynamic-stochastic approach is offered to be applied, allowing to estimate semi empirical parameters in transfer equations and turbulent diffusion transformations of biotic fields. Studies of biological active front zones as lines of maximum convergence of organic matter flux. Initial data set is to be formed out of photo active radiation, chlorophyll concentration and geostrophic currents selected from CCAR, AVISO, Ocean Color data archives. Corresponding time series built in nodes of the regular grid allow to obtain such characteristics as mean, dispersion, spectra, correlation functions of biotic fields over different space-time scales and to compare these results with contact observations. Then wavelet analysis is applied to estimate the contribution of different oscillations to the total variability of biological fields. All these form a basis for the dynamical-stochastic mathematical model which includes processes of transfer and turbulent diffusion of biological production.
