Response of Southern Ocean Ventilation to Changes in Midlatitude Westerly Winds

Waugh, Darryn; Hogg, Andrew; Spence, Paul; England, Matthew; Haine, T.W.N.


Changes in ventilation of the Southern Hemisphere oceans in response to changes in midlatitude westerly winds are examined by analyzing the ideal age tracer from global eddy-permitting ocean–ice model simulations in which there is an abrupt increase and/or a meridional shift in the winds. The age response in mode and intermediate waters is found to be close to linear; the response of a combined increase and shift of peak winds is similar to the sum of the individual responses to an increase...[Show more]
