Assessing IPCC AR4 Simulations of the Equatorial Thermocline

PI: Daiwei Wang
Institution: Columbia University
Abstract:
Most ocean or coupled general circulation models do not simulate the mean equatorial thermocline as tight as observed. This bias may consequently affect the simulation of both tropical climatology and climate variability. This work aims to assess and compare the simulations of the equatorial Pacific thermocline in various IPCC AR4 model runs. And we hope the assessment will shed light on the relative contributions of different physical processes to the stratification of the equatorial thermocline.
