A coarse resolution model is developed to study the thermohaline circulation of the North Atlantic. This model is driven by the annual mean Hellerman and Rosenstein wind stress field, Levitus sea surface restoring temperatures, and Schmitt, Bogden, and Dorman freshwater flux fields (mixed...
Modeling the paleocirculation of the Mediterranean: The Last Glacial Maximum and the Holocene with emphasis on the formation of sapropel S1Download
An ocean general circulation model is used to simulate the thermohaline circulation in the Mediterranean sea during the last glacial maximum and the Holocene, when the sapropel S1 was deposited. The model is forced by prescribed surface temperatures and salinities, where present-day values lead...
Sensitivity of the subpolar North Atlantic to Last Glacial Maximum surface forcing and sea ice distribution in an eddy-permitting regional ocean modelDownload
The impact of paleoatmospheric forcing and sea ice distribution on the circulation of the subpolar North Atlantic is examined in a regional eddy-permitting ocean model. We focus on water mass formation and the pathway of the North Atlantic Current. Paleofluxes are obtained from a coupled...
