Sensitivity of Marine Heatwave Metrics to Ocean Model Resolution
Sustained extreme temperature events in the ocean, referred to as marine heatwaves (MHWs), generate substantial ecological, social, and economic impacts. Ocean models provide insights to the drivers, persistence, and dissipation of MHWs. However, the sensitivity of MHW metrics to ocean model resolution is unknown. Here, we analyze global MHW metrics in three configurations of a global ocean-sea ice model at coarse (1◦), eddy-permitting (0.25◦), and eddy-rich (0.1◦) resolutions. We show...[Show more]
