On the importance of the choice of wind stress forcing to the modeling of the Mediterranean Sea circulationDownload
A 1/4° degree ocean general circulation model is used to examine the role that four different wind stress climatologies play on the circulation of the Mediterranean. The wind stress climatologies examined are those derived from numerical weather prediction models (National Meteorological Center...
Response of the Mediterranean Sea thermohaline circulation to observed changes in the winter wind stress field in the period 1980-1993Download
This paper seeks to model changes in deep water production in the eastern Mediterranean induced by changes in winter wind stress. An analysis of individual monthly wind stress fields over the Mediterranean for 1980–1993 from the SOC flux data set shows that an intensification of the winter mean...
