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 ...
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 ...
Towards a more saline North Atlantic and a fresher Arctic under global warming
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-11-14)
Most atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (GCMs) forced with increasing greenhouse gas concentrations predict enhanced atmospheric moisture transports to the high northern latitudes. Together with melting of ...
Inception of the Northern European Ice Sheet due to contrasting ocean and insolation forcing
About 115,000 years ago the last interglacial reached its terminus and nucleation of new ice sheet growth was initiated. Evidence from the northernmost Nordic Seas indicate that the inception of the last glacial was ...
