Dynamic Adjustment of the Ocean Circulation to Self- Attraction and Loading Effects


The oceanic response to surface loading, such as that related to atmospheric pressure, freshwater exchange, and changes in the gravity field, is essential to our understanding of sea level variability. In particular, so-called self-attraction and loading (SAL) effects caused by the redistribution of mass within the land–atmosphere– ocean system can have a… (More)
