The linear, viscid, continuously stratified model of McCreary (1981) is extended to allow for thermohaline forcing by a specified, longitudinally independent, surface density field PS' When the ocean is unbounded and Ps is steady, the density field is altered throughout the water column by vertical diffusion. If Ps increases poleward, the resulting pressure field slopes downward toward the pole in the upper water column, and there is an associated eastward geostrophic current. This interior… CONTINUE READING
