Abstract. The quasigeostrophic model describes large scale and relatively slow fluid motion in geophysical flows. We investigate the quasigeostrophic model under random forcing and random boundary conditions. We first transform the model into a partial differential equation with random coefficients. Then we show that, under suitable conditions on the random forcing, random boundary conditions, viscosity, Ekman constant and Coriolis parameter, all quasigeostrophic motion approach a unique stationary state exponentially fast. This stationary state corresponds to a unique invariant Dirac measure.
