Mixed layer depth (MLD) is computed, based upon historical measurements along Line P, in the Gulf of Alaska. Forty-six years of data are used for the monthly climatological calculations. To examine variability, the data are divided into two periods, pre and post 1976. Mixed layers deepen in...
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...
