[1] A controlled volume box model of the western basins of the Nordic Seas for water denser than 1027.8 kg m−3 is constructed, where accumulation in volume () is driven by net imbalances between prescribed net inflow from the northern, eastern and top boundaries (Qs) and hydraulically limited outflow through the Denmark Strait. The resulting Riccati equation is solved analytically for filling and flushing experiments with constant Qs and numerically for stochastic forcing Qs(t). For small… CONTINUE READING
