Evaluation of ocean carbon cycle models with data-based metrics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-02)
New radiocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-11 data from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment are used to assess a suite of 19 ocean carbon cycle models. We use the distributions and inventories of these tracers as quantitative ...
Future climate change: Modeling and scenarios for the Arctic
Evaluating Global Ocean Carbon Models: The Importance of Realistic Physics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-15)
A suite of standard ocean hydrographic and circulation metrics are applied to the equilibrium physical solutions from 13 global carbon models participating in phase 2 of the Ocean Carbon-cycle Model Intercomparison Project ...
Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe
(GODAE Project Office and Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, 2001-12)
During the first decade of the 21st century Earth observation from satellites will be faced with two major demands: provision of continuity missions and launch of new exploratory missions. This paper addresses European ...
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)
Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...
Two-phase, near-field modeling of purposefully released CO2 in the ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2001-01-15)
Modelling of deep-sea gravity currents using an integrated plume model
(American Geophysical Union, 1994)
Diagnosing ocean tracer transport from Sellafield and Dounreay by equivalent diffusion and age
(Science Press, 2008-09-27)
A simple approach for estimating the equivalent diffusion for diagnosing tracer transport is proposed. Two different expressions are derived; one is based directly on an analytical solution of the two-dimensional ...
Temporal and spatial variability of the sea surface salinity in the Nordic Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-11-02)
In this paper, the temporal and spatial variability of the sea surface salinity (SSS) in the Nordic Seas is investigated. The data include a Russian hydrographical database for the Nordic Seas and daily to weekly observations ...
Diapycnal Mixing in a Conceptual Model of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(Elsevier Science, 2006)
A three-box model of the Atlantic Ocean is used to examine the influence different parameterisations of the diapycnal mixing may have on the large scale dynamics of the ocean circulation. Special emphasis is given to the ...
