Sensitivity of abyssal water masses to overflow parameterisations

Snow, Kate; Hogg, Andy; Downes, Stephanie; Sloyan, Bernadette M.; Bates, Michael L.; Griffies, Stephen M.


Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) and North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW) control the abyssal limb of the global overturning circulation and play a major role in oceanic heat uptake and carbon storage. However, current general circulation models are unable to resolve the observed AABW and NADW formation and transport processes. One key process, that of overflows, motivates the application of overflow parameterisations. We present a sensitivity study of both AABW and NADW properties to three current...[Show more]
