Numerical Modeling of the Climate of the Nordic Seas

PI: Yulei Qui
Institution: China Institute for Atmospheric Physics
Abstract:
The Nordic Seas are a particularly challenging region for OGCMs because of it's characteristic length scales of only a few to about ten km, a variety of complex and interrelated ocean processes, and extreme air-sea fluxes. Also, numerical modelling of the climate of the Nordic Seas and the adjacent waters is an important method to assess and predict the influence of the region on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), the cycling of fresh water, and the ocean productivity. The field has made considerable progress in recent years due to a larger number of contributing modelling groups. Therefore, we plan to give an overview of the status of the prognostic modelling of the Nordic Seas marine climate system to provide guidelines for the future development of model systems particularly tailored for the Nordic Seas region. To exemplify the status, output from some widely different, state-of-the-art OGCM systems are needed. We also address processes that are still inadequately described in the current generation of OGCMs, providing guidelines for the future development of model systems particularly tailored for the Nordic Seas region.
