Frequency-Domain Analysis of the Energy Budget in an Idealized Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model

Martin, Paige E.; Arbic, Brian K.; Hogg, Andy; Kiss, Andrew; Munroe, James R.; Blundell, Jeffrey R.


Climate variability is investigated by identifying the energy sources and sinks in an idealized, coupled, ocean-atmosphere model, tuned to mimic the North Atlantic region. The spectral energy budget is calculated in the frequency domain to determine the processes that either deposit energy into or extract energy from each fluid, over time scales from one day up to 100 years. Nonlinear advection of kinetic energy is found to be the dominant source of low-frequency variability in both the ocean...[Show more]
