The westward-flowing Caribbean Current (Wust, 1964; Morrison & Nowlin, 1982), with its characteristically intense transit of mesoscale eddies, is the major oceanographic process in the Caribbean (Jouanno, Sheinbaum, Barnier, Molines, & Candela, 2012).
There is evidence from several areas of the ocean that mesoscale structures determine the distribution gradients of fish larvae and other plankton groups (Moser & Smith, 1993; Muhling et al, 2007; Okazaki & Nakata, 2007; Espinoza-Carreon et al., 2012).
In a new study published in November in Nature Climate Change, researchers reported that the volume of rainfall from storms known as mesoscale convective systems--or clusters of thunderstorms that can cross dozens of miles and last for hours--will increase by up to 80 percent across the continent by the end of the century.
On the one hand, regional coupled model and data assimilation is an important means to understand the details of local mesoscale and submesoscale air-sea interactions and how atmospheric and oceanic processes interact across multiple scales.
However, when fracturing occurs, the macroscale mechanical behavior of concrete is greatly controlled by its components and their interactions taking place on a finer scale (mesoscale) [3, 4], which means accurate modeling of concrete fracturing calls for the consideration of its mesostructure.
