DISCUSSION MEETING

AIR-SEA INTERACTIONS IN THE BAY OF BENGAL FROM MONSOONS TO MIXING

ORGANIZERS:
Eric D'Asaro, Rama Govindarajan, Manikandan Mathur, Debasis Sengupta, Emily Shroyer, Jai Sukhatme and Amit Tandon

DATE: 18 February 2019 to 23 February 2019

VENUE: Ramanujan Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore.

Although total rainfall during the South Asian Monsoon varies by only ~10% across India, spatiotemporal variability in precipitation is large, difficult to predict, and has far-reaching implications for local communities. The dependence of an agrarian economy on rainfall makes prediction of monsoon variability of paramount importance to India and other countries in South Asia. Currently, representation of the monsoon in global climate models exhibits large biases over the Indian Ocean. In particular, skill in prediction of intraseasonal oscillations (ISOs), which are associated with active (wet) and break (dry) periods, is modest compared to its potential, giving reason to strive for improved forecast capabilities. Ocean-atmosphere coupled models have greater skill in representing ISOs compared to stand-alone atmospheric models. This discrepancy highlights the importance of air-sea interaction to ISO prediction.

The focus of this workshop is on air-sea interaction within the Bay of Bengal, a region that connects the ocean-atmosphere-land through processes that regulate delivery of freshwater to the nations around its periphery. During summer, southwesterly winds gather moisture from the ocean and carry it deep inland over the Indian subcontinent, bringing welcome rains to a parched land. During winter, the winds reverse, and the ocean circulation responds by dispersing terrestrial runoff into the bay. This freshwater impacts the ocean’s circulation through modification of upper ocean structure and surface temperature, thus affecting ocean coupling with the atmosphere. Better characterizations of the structure and processes in the Bay of Bengal are needed to improve the representation of its role in the monsoons.

Random YouTube Video Generator

 This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.

 The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

 Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.

 So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.

 YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.

 YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

 YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
