The transient response of Southern Ocean circulation to geothermal heating in a global climate model

Downes, Stephanie; Hogg, Andrew; Griffies, S.M.; Samuels, Bonita L


Model and observational studies have concluded that geothermal heating significantly alters the global overturning circulation and the properties of the widely-distributed Antarctic Bottom Waters. Here we test two distinct geothermal heat flux datasets under different experimental designs in a fully coupled model that mimics the control run of a typical Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) climate model. Our regional analysis reveals that bottom temperature and transport changes, due to...[Show more]
