    The Southern Ocean, similar to the MOC, plays a major role in the global ocean circulation (Figure 2) and in particular on regional and global climate (Siedler et al., ). F igure 2: Schematic. The book represents all the knowledge we currently have on ocean circulation. It presents an up-to-date summary of the state of the science relating to the role of the oceans in the physical climate system. The book is structured to guide the reader through the wide range of world ocean circulation experiment (WOCE) science in a consistent way.

    Studies of climate frequently involve identifying a plausible forcing mechanism (e.g., solar fluctuations), hypothesizing the response, and attempting to verify the hypothesis with data. This is difficult because the mechanisms are many and frequently small in amplitude, the response complex, and. The modelling of ocean circulation is important not only for its own sake, but also in terms of the prediction of weather patterns and the effects of climate change. This book introduces the basic computational techniques necessary for all models of the ocean and atmosphere, and the conditions they must satisfy. It describes the workings of ocean models, the problems that must be solved in Cited by:

      Book Description: This book describes how Earth's climate is changing, how it has been changing in the recent geological past and how it may change in the future. It covers the physical sciences that build the foundations of our current understanding of global climate change such as radiation, Earth's energy balance, the greenhouse effect and the carbon : Andreas Schmittner. Notes on the Ocean Circulation for Climate Understanding Draft No. 1 Carl Wunsch Novem 1Introduction These lectures are intended to provide an overview of how the ocean influences the climate system. This subject is a very large one and no introductory survey can come close to explaining all of the elements and nuances.

variability, and their influence on atmosphere and climate. WBCs are largely a manifestation of wind-driven circulation; they compensate the meridional Sverdrup transport induced by the winds over the ocean interior.

Some WBCs also play a role in the global thermohaline circulation, through inter-gyre and inter-basin water exchanges. Deep ocean currents. Differences in water density, resulting from the variability of water temperature (thermo) and salinity (haline), also cause ocean currents.

This process is known as thermohaline circulation. In cold regions, such as the North Atlantic Ocean, ocean water loses heat to the atmosphere and becomes cold and dense. COVID Resources.

Ocean circulation is a key regulator of climate by storing and transporting heat, carbon, nutrients and freshwater all around the world.

Complex and diverse mechanisms interact with one another to produce this circulation and define its properties. Ocean circulation can be conceptually divided into two main components: a fast and energetic. This circulation has important implications for ocean chemistry and biology, atmospheric science, and climate.

Ocean Circulation in Three Dimensions surveys both observations and theories of the time-mean circulation, enabling readers to see the relevance and limitations of leading theories, as well as the patterns linking the behavior of Author: Barry A.

Klinger, Thomas W.

The increased rates of evaporation and precipitation caused greater regional salinity contrasts in the ocean, so that salinity became a major factor in controlling ocean circulation. Ocean Circulation and Climate: A 21st Century Perspective, Edition 2 - Ebook written by Gerold Siedler, Stephen M.
