Separating the influence of projected changes in air temperature and wind on patterns of sea level change and ocean heat contentDownload
We present ocean model sensitivity experiments aimed at separating the influence of the projected changes in the “thermal” (near-surface air temperature) and “wind” (near-surface winds) forcing on the patterns of sea level and ocean heat content. In the North Atlantic, the distribution of sea...
Deep convection in the Labrador Sea is an important component of the global ocean ventilation. The associated loss of heat to the atmosphere from the interior of the sea is thought to be mostly supplied by mesoscale eddies, generated either remotely or as a result of convection itself—processes...
Impact of extended NAO buoyancy forcing on the subpolar North Atlantic and climate variability over the last milleniumDownload
We examine the impact of forcing a regional eddy-permitting ocean model of the subpolar North Atlantic with anomalous buoyancy fluxes corresponding to extended extreme states of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). We find a weakened (enhanced) Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) in our low...
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...
