What is the relationship between interannual AMOC and upper-ocean heat content (UOHC) variability?
G. Forget et al,
SST variability: rms(modeled – observed) (G. Forget)
Estimate of Atlantic OHT from ECMWF reanalysis: Trenberth and Caron (2001)
Note: Neither Florida current transport or RAPID AMOC transport estimates are used as constraints in ECCO
What portion of the variability is captured by 1st baroclinic mode?
Majority of baroclinic pressure variability in upper ocean is explained by 1st baroclinic mode
