Several well-known features are evident. Among these are very high outgoing fluxes of latent and sensible heat during the late fall and early winter, which drive strong cooling of the lakes, and greater seasonal variation of surface temperature and fluxes in shallower by: 4. However, the effect of stochastic atmospheric induced heat and moisture fluxes in the origin of the equatorial Atlantic Niño remains largely unknown and is thus examined in the present study. The monthly Atlantic Niño index of the 12 slab-CGCMs exhibits strong variability (σ=∼± K; for the full-CGCMs, σ=∼± K).Cited by: where OHC [J] is the ocean heat content, t is time and t 0 is an initial reference time.

The object of this paper is to show the effect of stochastic surface heat flux forcing on the climatology of a model seasonal thermocline. It was theoretically demon-strated by Hasselmann () that if "weather" forcing can be considered to be white noise, then the ocean acts as an integrator.
The result is a red-shifted response spectrum. The effect of stochastic surface heat fluxes on the climatology of the seasonal thermocline. Item Preview remove-circle The effect of stochastic surface heat fluxes on the climatology of the seasonal thermocline.

A stochastic wind stress component applied to an annual heat flux cycle produces a smaller sea surface temperature variance, but results in a more rapidly deepening and deeper mixed layer than achieved with an annual cycle and constant wind stress.
The stochastic forcing model shows that the climatology of the seasonal thermocline is dependent on nonlinear interactions between the annual cycle and stochastic. The Effect of Stochastic Surface Heat Fluxes On the Climatology of the Seasonal Thermocline.

In this case the driving term is the Ekman suction produced by the curl of the wind stress. For periods shorter than about 6 months, the /?-effect does not play a role, so that the linear response of mixedCited by: Few studies have focused on the heat exchange process in surface and subsurface layers because of the existence of a strong seasonal thermocline at the bottom of thin summer mixed layers (ML).
The seasonal cycle in SSH represents mostly a steric effect associated with a changing heat content of the surface layers above the seasonal thermocline. However, in some locations, notably the North Pacific, a seasonal cycle in SSH is also related to a mass redistribution due to changing wind stress fields (e.g., compare Stammer ), but Cited by: Heat Storage Rate (HSR) is calculated as the time rate of change of the heat content due to variations in the temperature integrated from the surface down to the base of the seasonal thermocline.
The fact that the SST increase is associated with a shallow thermocline indicates that the major contributor to the surface mixed layer heat budget is not the vertical flux of heat through the thermocline but the net surface heat flux through the air–sea interface (i.e., the combination of net shortwave radiation, Cited by: Previous studies suggest that extratropical atmospheric variability influences the tropics via the seasonal footprinting mechanism (SFM), in which fluctuations in the North Pacific Effect of stochastic surface heat fluxes on the climatology of the seasonal thermocline book (NPO) impact the ocean via surface heat fluxes during winter and the resulting springtime subtropical SST anomalies alter the atmosphere–ocean system over the tropics in the following summer, fall, and Cited by: In this paper we present a simple univariate stochastic model of midlatitude SST anomalies that accounts for rapid fluctuations in surface heat fluxes, such as might result from the gustiness of sea surface winds.
The parameters of this model are determined from OWS data whose non-Gaussian PDFs are described in section by: This effect has such a large influence in this region that while the 1-year average net surface heat flux is out of the ocean (Table 1), the net effect of the surface heat flux is to warm the mixed layer (Table 2).

The velocity core, defined as the strongest along-stream flow at a given depth on a cross-stream vertical section, shifts offshore with increasing depth. Vertical and horizontal shears of the WBC are the strongest on the coastal (cyclonic) side, accompanying a strong gradient of sea surface temperature (SST).

The fluxes of momentum, energy, and water through the sea surface constitute the principal coupling between ocean and atmosphere. The momentum flux (wind stress) is a main driving force for oceanic motions, in particular for currents near the surface, along continental margins and in the main thermocline, whereas the fluxes of heat and freshwater drive the slower thermohaline Cited by: However, the cancellation of surface heat fluxes effect with ocean transport divergences effect is not exact and gives rise to SST variability.

The seasonal cycle in the forcing is much larger at higher latitudes than in the tropics, which explains why the seasonal temperature variations in the. Second, the seasonal cycle of thermocline depth also exhibited difference between the two periods (Figure 4c versus Figure 4d).
Generally, in opposition to tropical trade winds, the seasonal cycle of thermocline shifted 1 month earlier during – than during – seasonal thermocline (where they are insulated from surface fluxes) and then remixed in the surface layer the following fall and winter.

The mixed layer plays an important role in the physical climate. Because the specific heat of ocean water is much larger than that of air, the top m of the ocean holds as much heat as the entire atmosphere above it.
Thus the heat required to change a mixed layer of m by 1 °C would be sufficient to raise the temperature of the.
