Boussinesq equations on a sector North Atlantic model

  • Problem description: In De Niet et al. (2007) and Thies et al. (2009), the steady hydrostatic equations for wind and thermohaline ocean flows were solved versus parameters. The domain is a 60 degrees W-E sector over latitudes 10N-74N on the sphere with a constant depth of 4000m. Flow is forced by a wind stress, a surface temperature distribution and a freshwater flux.
  • Aim is to compute the bifurcation diagram of the flow in the parameter measuring the strength of the freshwater flux for a high-resolution model (down to 1/4 degree horizontally).
