Mechanical power input from buoyancy and wind to the circulation in an ocean model
We make a systematic quantitative comparison of the effects that surface buoyancy forcing and wind stress have on the energy balance of an idealized, rotating, pole-to-pole ocean model with a zonally re-entrant channel in the south, forced by realistic heat (buoyancy) fluxes and wind stresses representative of global climatology. Surface buoyancy fluxes and wind stress forcing are varied independently; both have significant effects on the reservoirs of various forms of energy and the rates of...[Show more]
