Introduction SST STCs Zonal Currents NGCU Conclusions

  • In ORCA05 some problems in the tropical pacific:
    • no Tsuchiya Jets
    • EUC too deep
    • transport too high

better representation

with higher resolution?

  • Differences between the ORCA025 experiments:
    • KAB001 (CORE forcing, weak 3-dim restoring in high lat.)
    • KAB002 (CORE forcing, strong surface restoring)
    • G70 (ERA-40, strong surface restoring)

Transport

transport variability

  • mean transport
  • (24.0
  • 5°S to 10°S average:
  • ORCA2:
  • ~ 13 Sv
  • ORCA05:
  • ~ 20 Sv
  • ORCA025:
  • ~20 Sv
slide16
Introduction SST STCs Zonal Currents NGCU Conclusions
  • improvements with ORCA025:
    • Tsuchiya Jets present
    • EUC extension not that deep
    • more realistic EUC transport
    • representation of western boundary current
  • KAB001 compared to G70:
    • structure of zonal currents and OT similar
    • all wind driven features weaker in G70
    • EUC transport variability in phase with offset
  • open question:
    • different STC trends: ORCA05 > G70 > KAB001
