Sensitivity of Antarctic Bottom Water to changes in Surface Buoyancy Fluxes

Snow, Kate; Hogg, Andrew; Sloyan, Bernadette M; Downes, Stephanie


The influence of freshwater and heat flux changes on Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) properties are investigated within a realistic bathymetry coupled ocean–ice sector model of the Atlantic Ocean. The model simulations are conducted at eddy-permitting resolution where dense shelf water production dominates over open ocean convection in forming AABW. Freshwater and heat flux perturbations are applied independently and have contradictory surface responses, with increased upper-ocean temperature and...[Show more]
