ACCESS-OM2 v1.0: a global ocean–sea ice model at three resolutions
Abstract. We introduce ACCESS-OM2, a new version of the ocean–sea ice model of the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator. ACCESS-OM2 is driven by a prescribed atmosphere (JRA55-do)
ACCESS-OM2: A Global Ocean-Sea Ice Model at Three Resolutions
Abstract. We introduce a new version of the ocean-sea ice implementation of the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator, ACCESS-OM2. The model has been developed with the aim of being
Local Grid Refinement in New Zealand's Earth System Model: Tasman Sea Ocean Circulation Improvements and Super‐Gyre Circulation Implications
This paper describes the development of New Zealand's Earth System Model (NZESM) and evaluates its performance against its parent model (United Kingdom Earth System Model, UKESM) and observations.
Ocean and atmosphere changes in the Caribbean Sea during the twenty-first century using CMIP5 models
Coastal communities around the Caribbean Sea are vulnerable to global warming impacts, partly because of constraints on their adaptive capacity. We use three climate models provided by the Coupled
Impacts of Broad-Scale Surface Freshening of the Southern Ocean in a Coupled Climate Model
AbstractThe Southern Ocean surface has freshened in recent decades, increasing water column stability and reducing upwelling of warmer subsurface waters. The majority of CMIP5 models underestimate or
On the Superposition of Mean Advective and Eddy-Induced Transports in Global Ocean Heat and Salt Budgets
Ocean thermal expansion is a large contributor to observed sea level rise, which is expected to continue into the future. However, large uncertainties exist in sea level projections among climate
Sensitivity of abyssal water masses to overflow parameterisations
Southern Hemisphere westerlies as a driver of the early deglacial atmospheric CO2 rise
It is shown that Southern Ocean convection driven by intensified Southern Hemisphere westerlies during Heinrich stadial 1 can explain the abrupt pCO2 rise and changes in atmosphere and ocean carbon isotopes.

Impact of latitudinal variations in vertical diffusivity on climate simulations
[1] The currently available theoretical and observational evidence for a latitudinal structure of thermocline vertical diffusivity is synthesized and included in a state of the art coupled climate
PHC: A Global Ocean Hydrography with a High-Quality Arctic Ocean
A new gridded ocean climatology, the Polar Science Center Hydrographic Climatology (PHC), has been created that merges the 1998 version of the World Ocean Atlas with the new regional Arctic Ocean
Transport across 48°N in the Atlantic Ocean
Transports across 48°N in the Atlantic Ocean are estimated from five repeat World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) hydrographic lines collected in this region in 1993–2000, from time-varying

Volume Transport of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current from Bottom Pressure Measurements
Abstract Meausrements from bottom pressure gauges located at the north and south sides of Drake Passage are used to extend the one-year time series of volume transport of the Antarctic Circumpolar
On the sensitivity of Southern Ocean sea ice to the surface freshwater flux: A model study
The Hamburg Ocean Primitive Equation model is used to study the response of the Southern Ocean's vertical stability and sea ice cover to variations in the prescribed surface freshwater flux (SFWF).
