[1] Here we investigate the role of the Bering Strait (BS) in the thermohaline circulation (THC) response to added freshwater forcing (hosing) in the subpolar North Atlantic, through analyzing simulations of a fully coupled climate model with an open and closed BS. Results show that the THC declines similarly with an open and closed BS during hosing. However, the recovery of the THC is delayed by about a century in the closed BS simulation than in the open BS one after the hosing is off. The… CONTINUE READING
