Partial differential equations with boundary noise have been introduced by Da Prato and Zabczyck in the seminal paper [2]. They showed that, also in the one dimensional case, the solutions of the heat equation with white noise Dirichlet or Neumann Boundary conditions have low regularity compared to the case of noise diffused inside the domain. In particular, in the case of Dirichlet boundary conditions the solution is only a distribution. Some improvements in the analysis of the interior regularity of the solutions of these problems and some nonlinear variants have been obtained exploiting specific properties of the heat kernel and of suitable nonlinearities, see [1, 3, 4]. All these issues make the problem of treating non-linear partial differential equations with boundary noise coming from fluid dynamical models an, almost untouched, field of open problems. In this talk we will discuss the global well-posedness and the interior regularity of a system of 2D Navier-Stokes equations with inhomogeneous stochastic boundary conditions. Following the books by Pedlosky [6, 7] and Gill [5], the noise, white in time and coloured in space, can be interpreted as the physical law describing the driving mechanism on the atmosphere-ocean interface, i.e. as a balance of the shear stress of the ocean and the horizontal wind force. The talk is based on a joint work with A. Agresti.
