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.
