Response of sea surface temperature (shown in the lower panel as anomalies from the beginning of the experiment) to changes in North Atlantic meridional overturning (shown in the upper panel) in the UVic coupled model. The model was forced with changes in surface freshwater fluxes in the North Atlantic. Note the interesting response in the southern hemisphere.
Curious what happens at deeper levels? Here's the model evolution at 500 m depth.
