Response of the Southern Ocean circulation to changes in global climate

Morrison, Adele Kim

Description

The Southern Ocean circulation plays a central role in the dynamics of past and future global climate change. However, due to a scarcity of observations and the difficulty of accurately modelling the Southern Ocean, we lack a comprehensive understanding of how the circulation responds to change. The energetic eddy field directly impacts the response of the circulation, but the small scale of the eddies has generally been below the resolution of numerical ocean models. This thesis makes use of...[Show more]
