Adele K. Morrison, Andrew M. Hogg and Marshall L. Ward Sensitivity of the Southern Ocean overturning circulation to surface buoyancy forcing Geophysical Research Letters 38

Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL048031

Key Points

  • Southern Ocean overturning increases with mid-latitude buoyancy forcing
  • This increase (and sensitivity) is limited by Ekman transport
  • Sensitivity depends on locations of wind stress, buoyancy forcing and upwelling
