Processes governing the predictability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation in a coupled GCM

Abstract

The processes that govern the predictability of decadal variations in the North Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) are investigated in a long control simulation of the ECHO-G coupled atmosphere-ocean model. We elucidate the roles of local stochastic forcing by the atmosphere, and other potential ocean processes, and use our results to build a… (More)
