The energetics of global thermohaline circulation and its wind enhancement / L. Shogo Urakawa, Hiroyasu Hasumi.

Title: The energetics of global thermohaline circulation and its wind enhancement / L. Shogo Urakawa, Hiroyasu Hasumi.
Author(s): Urakawa, L. Shogo.
Hasumi, Hiroyasu.
Date: 2009.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2009.), Vol. 39(7) (2009)
Abstract: Numerical investigation of energy budget of global thermohaline circulation (THC) enables comprehensive picture of global THC by separately calculating energy budgets for Atlantic, Indo-Pacific, and Southern Ocean basins. Largest mechanical energy source is kinetic energy (KE) input to general circulation by wind, of which 0.3 terawatt (TW) is converted to gravitational potential energy (GPE), with 80% of energy conversion occurring in Southern Ocean. Almost same quantity of GPE is supplied by vertical mixing. Injected GPE is almost equally dissipated by convective adjustment and effect of cabbeling, and largely consumed in Southern Ocean. Results show dominant role of Southern Ocean in energy balance of THC and importance of interbasin transport of GPE. Examination of enhancement of meridional overturning circulation in Atlantic induced by wind in Southern Ocean and calculation of the energy budget anomaly enables authors to identify its mechanism as component of THC.
