Ocean general circulation modeling in different resolutions

These studies products are being developed in co-operation with LEGI (Grenoble).

We performed long-term integration with a coarse resolution ocean GCM driven by surface fluxes from reanalyses (Gulev et al. 2003). Later similar experiments were performed with high resolution models (Gulev et al. 2006).

We found complicated lagged relationships between the intensity of the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation and surface water mass transformation which represents the “ocean view” of surface fluxes.

Currently the ocean modelling activities at SAIL are being developed under the joint DRAKKAR project.
