Sensitivity of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation to surface forcing

Abstract:

The determination of the mechanisms setting the strength and structure of the large scale circulation is a fundamental and long-standing problem in physical oceanography. In this thesis, we seek to explore the mechanisms contributing to the steady state and variability of the large scale flow, with a focus on better understanding the dynamics of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC).

In the first part of this thesis, we explore the linear sensitivity of the monthly ...
