Diagnosing Atlantic Layer circulation and properties in AOMIP models
Greg Holloway, Institute of Ocean Science, Sidney, BC, Canada; and E. C. Hunke, M. Maltrud, and M. J. Karcher
Within the Arctic Ocean Models Intercomparison Project (AOMIP), results from AWI, IOS and LANL models are compared with respect to circulation, temperature and salinity through the Atlantic Layer. Evaluations are performed as functions of depth and of time over the period 1950 - 2000. Goals include identifying differences among AOMIP models leading to different representations of the Atlantic Layer.
