This study investigates the long-term behaviour of the thermohaline circulation (THC) in the CSIRO climate model, under a scenario of transient increase of atmospheric (equivalent) CO2 concentration followed by a perpetual stabilisation at triple the initial level (3 × CO2). The North Atlantic Deep Water Formation (NADWF) declines substantially and the Antarctic Bottom Water Formation (AABWF) essentially ceases by the time of CO2 tripling. During the subsequent millennium of stable 3 × CO2… CONTINUE READING
