Southern Ocean carbon-wind stress feedback

Abstract:

The Southern Ocean is the largest sink of anthropogenic carbon in the present-day climate. Here, Southern Ocean (Formula presented.) and its dependence on wind forcing are investigated using an equilibrium mixed layer carbon budget. This budget is used to derive an expression for Southern Ocean (Formula presented.) sensitivity to wind stress. Southern Ocean (Formula presented.) is found to vary as the square root of area-mean wind stress, arising from the dominance of vertical mixing over oth...
