Southern Ocean heat and momentum uptake are sensitive to the vertical resolution at the ocean surface

Stewart, Kial; Hogg, Andrew


The Southern Ocean plays a leading oceanic role in Earth’s changing climate, accommodating over two thirds of the excess anthropogenic heat to date. In spite of this, climate and ocean models exhibit substantial variability in Southern Ocean heat uptake and storage, reflecting the modelling challenges of representing the responsible mechanisms. Here, Southern Ocean heat uptake is investigated in a suite of global ocean–sea-ice simulations run over a range of vertical and horizontal resolutions...[Show more]
