Steven Jayne is a Senior Scientist and a graduate of the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography. His research interests include: Understanding and modeling the ocean’s dynamics and its role in the Earth’s climate. Collecting and synthesizing the diverse set of global ocean observations to map and understand the ocean’s general circulation.  Studying the special role of western boundary currents in the general circulation and eddy-mean flow interactions within them.  Investigating air-sea interaction in tropical cyclones.  Improving physical parameterizations in ocean circulation models.
