Southern Ocean Response to Relative Velocity Wind Stress Forcing
An eddy-resolving quasigeostrophic model of the Southern Ocean coupled to a dynamic atmospheric mixed layer is used to compare the performance of two different wind stress parameterization schemes. The first is the standard quadratic drag law, based on atmospheric velocity alone, whereas the second (more exact) formulation is based on the difference between ocean and atmosphere velocities. The two different schemes give very similar magnitudes of mean stress; however, the relative velocity...[Show more]
