Oceanic Advection Controls Mesoscale Mixed Layer Heat Budget and Air-sea Heat Exchange in the Southern Ocean

Yu Gao, Igor Kamenkovich, Natalie Perlin & Ben Kirtman
We analyze the role of mesoscale heat advection in the Southern Ocean mixed layer (ML) heat budget using a regional high-resolution coupled model, with realistic atmospheric forcing and an idealized ocean component. In order to test if the overall current speed affect our conclusion, the simulations are carried out in two distinct cases: one with overall strong current (SC case) and the other with overall weak current (WC case). Mesoscale currents are defined with two...
