Near-surface Diurnal Warming Simulations: Validation with High Res...

By: B. Scanlon; B. Ward; G. A. Wick

Description: School of Physics and Ryan Institute, National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland. Sea surface temperature (SST) is an important property for governing the exchange of energy between the ocean and the atmosphere. Common in situ methods of measuring SST often require a cool-skin and warm-layer adjustment in the presence of diurnal warming effects. A critical requirement for an ocean submodel is that it can simulate the change in SST over diurnal, sea...

By: V. O. Ivchenko; M. Couldrey; N. C. Wells

Description: University of Southampton, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK. Ocean heat storage is an essential component of the climate system and there is considerable interest in its accurate evaluation. There are a number of heat storage products produced by many different groups. These products are derived from Argo as well as other platforms, for example XBT and CTD, in the last decade. Here we compare two heat storage estimates for the North At...

On the Assimilation of Ice Velocity and Concentration Data Into La...

By: T. Fichefet; V. Dulière

Description: Université Catholique de Louvain, Institut d'Astronomie et de Géophysique Georges LemaÎtre, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Data assimilation into sea ice models designed for climate studies has started about 15 years ago. In most of the studies conducted so far, it is assumed that the improvement brought by the assimilation is straightforward. However, some studies suggest this might not be true. In order to elucidate this question and to find an appropriate...

Description: Royal Netherlands Institute of Meteorology, De Bilt, The Netherlands. Using the ECHAM5/MPI-OM model, we study the relation between the variations in the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) and both the Pacific sea surface temperature (SST) and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) amplitude. In a 17-member 20C3M/SRES-A1b ensemble for 1950–2100 the Pacific response to AMOC variations on different time scales and amplitudes is considered....

By: S. E. Allen; R. Francois; Y. Luo

Description: Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of British Columbia, 6339 Stores Road, Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z4, Canada. A two dimensional scavenging-circulation model is used to investigate the patterns of sediment 231Pa/230Th generated by the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and further advance the application of this proxy for ocean paleocirculation studies. The scavenging parameters and the geometry of the over...

By: G. D. McCarthy; B. A. King; H. L. Bryden; E. L. McDonagh

Description: National Oceanography Centre Southampton, University of Southampton, Empress Dock, Southampton, UK. The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation comprises warm upper waters flowing northward, becoming colder and denser until they form deep water in the Labrador and Nordic Seas that then returns southward through the North and South Atlantic. The ocean heat transport associated with this circulation is 1.3 PW, accounting for 25% of the maximum combined...

Description: Laboratoire des Ecoulements Géophysiques et Industriels, CNRS/Université de Grenoble, France. In ocean general circulation models, near surface atmospheric variables used to specify the atmospheric remain one of the main sources of error. The objective of this research is to constrain the surface forcing function of an ocean model by Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data assimilation. For that purpose, a set of corrections for ERAinterim (he...
