The 2008 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Hao Zuo for the poster/PICO entitled:
An isopycnic model study of the circulation of Sub-Antarctic Mode Water throughout the global ocean (Zuo, H.; Garabato, A.N.; New, A.; Oschlies, A.)

Hao Zuo is a PhD student in the National Oceanography Centre at Southampton University, UK. My research focuses on Sub-Antarctic Mode Water and Southern Ocean nutrient supply for the Global thermocline by using numerical model. I am currently using A HYbrid Coordinate Ocean general circulation Model (HYCOM) to determine the subduction, ventilation and re-emerence into the mixed layer of the SAMW in the global ocean, as well as their sensitivity to perturbations in mixing parameters. The result shows the relative importance of different driving mechanisms and the importance of SAMW’s control in the global nutrient supply.
