Record #126166:

The delicacy of the oceanic thermohaline circulation / James C. McWilliams.

Title: The delicacy of the oceanic thermohaline circulation / James C. McWilliams.
Author(s): McWilliams, James C.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Ice in the climate system. (1993.),
Abstract: By "delicacy" is meant capacity for small changes in external conditions to cause large changes in response. In addition, there may be other aspects of delicacy about which very little is known yet: feedbacks between forcing and response (climate system dynamics) and internal variability arising from nonlinear dynamics of thermohaline circulation (its chaos)
