Effects of Tropical Cyclones on Ocean Heat Transport in a High-Resolution Coupled General Circulation Model
AbstractIn this paper the interplay between tropical cyclones (TCs) and the Northern Hemispheric ocean heat transport (OHT) is investigated. In particular, results from a numerical simulation of theExpand
