Abstract : This report is a review of current trends and approaches to modeling various ocean phenomena. We begin with a brief discussion of large scale circulation models. This leads to a summary of models of large (i.e., tens of kilometers) fronts and attempts to model them. The next section is a detailed discussion of upper ocean dynamics and the models used for simulations. The final section discusses Garrett-Munk type internal wave models and models of the effects of finestructure. (Author)
