Sensitivity analysis of the climate of a chaotic ocean circulation model Article in Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society () - December with 22 Reads. Regional analysis of the differences between the models highlights the importance of wind stress in determining the circulation, particularly in the Southern Ocean. In International Geophysics, Global Thermohaline Circulations. The thermohaline circulation is basically an overturning of the ocean in the meridional-vertical plane. In contrast to the quasi-horizontal wind-driven gyres, which are constrained to limited ranges of latitude and depth, the thermohaline-driven overturning cells are global in scale.   Fig. Ocean schematic. This view of the ocean shows the mixed-layer boundary (dotted line) and the pycnocline or thermocline boundary (dashed line), with the deep ocean s of salinity are in red; changes in water are in blue; and evaporation, precipitation and runoff, and changes in energy (radiation) are in motions are in black and include wind stress and surface Author: Andrew Gettelman, Richard B. Rood.

In general, the classical bulk formulae used to compute the wind stress are being questioned, given the complex processes relating surface wind, surface waves, ocean currents, and high-frequency coupling with fine resolution atmosphere and ocean simulations (McWilliams and Sullivan, , Sullivan et al., , Sullivan and McWilliams, ).Cited by: 5. Clouds influence the surface radiation budget and enhance sensible heat flux, evaporation, and the surface wind stress in the vicinity of deep convection (Johnson and Nicholls, ). Clearly the development and evaluation of atmosphere and ocean models for use in coupled models will require long, accurate records of global SST and wind stress. The simulation of the diurnal cycle (DC) of precipitation and surface wind circulation by a global general circulation model (GCM) with a horizontal resolution of 50 km is evaluated. The model output is compared with observational counterparts based on datasets produced by the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission and the European Centre for. Bibliography - Stephen M Griffies. Dias, F B., which include corrections for use in ocean simulations. We compared wind patterns most relevant to ocean circulation (surface wind stress, its curl and estimates of induced vertical upwelling velocity) across global and regional scales, with added emphasis on the main Eastern Boundary Upwelling.

  Sea-level rise is not globally uniform. A combination of observations and climate-model simulations reveals a pattern of sea-level changes in the Indian Ocean, with a Cited by: The ocean adjusts with some time lag to the change in the wind stress curl, and it is this transient ocean response that allows continuous oscillations. The corresponding evolution in upper-ocean heat content in the North Pacific, as derived from the Latif and Barnett () simulation, is Author: Mojib Latif.   To validate the simulated M 2 tide variations, we perform the harmonic analysis of both simulated and observed sea surface height anomaly data to extract four tidal constituents: O 1, K 1, M 2, and S 2. We analyze an along‐track altimeter product of a satellite altimeter, Jason‐2, with approximately days interval for a year period Cited by:   Abstract. The Gulf Stream is the focus of an effort aimed at dynamical understanding and evaluation of current systems simulated by eddy-resolving Ocean General Circulation Models (OGCMs), including examples with and without data assimilation and results from four OGCMs (HYCOM, MICOM, NEMO, and POP), the first two including Lagrangian Cited by:
