We revisit the challenges and prospects for ocean circulation models following Griffies et al. Over the past decade, ocean circulation models evolved through improved understanding, numerics, spatial discretization, grid configurations, parameterizations, data assimilation, environmental monitoring, and process-level observations and modeling. Important large scale applications over the last decade are simulations of the Southern Ocean, the Meridional Overturning Circulation and its variability, and regional sea level change. The scales where nonhydrostatic effects become important are beginning to be resolved in regional and process models. Coupling to sea ice, ice shelves, and high-resolution atmospheric models has stimulated new ideas and driven improvements in numerics.

The model includes parameterizations of physical exchange in the water column that takes account of vertical advection and diffusion and lateral exchange between the Black Sea and the Bosporus Plume. The model incorporates parameterizations for 25 biogeochemical processes, which we have found to be important to simulate the redox biogeochemical structure over a period of several decades.

Parameterizations for biogeochemical processes follow the principles of formal chemical kinetics. Limiting functions are not applied. Neither physical nor biogeochemical processes are limited to depth or density layers of water, making the generated biogeochemical structure flexible.

The redox budget and importance of individual processes for the budget of oxygen, sulfide, nitrate, ammonium, organic matter, manganese and iron are discussed in detail. In particular, we demonstrate that the biogeochemical structure of the oxic and suboxic layer strongly depends on export production and climate-induced variations in ventilation. The redox budget and the biogeochemical structure of the anoxic zone highly depend on the lateral exchange between the Black Sea and the Bosporus Plume, which appears to be the major reason for the existence of the suboxic zone.

A one-dimensional isopycnal model has been.

I imagine a 1D universe to consist of just length, without width or depth, without these dimensions their would be no discernible shape to it. How can a straight one dimensional line loop around anything? Doesn't make sense to me. Or has 'straight' been redefined to mean 'slightly curved'? Fuzzy Logic. I think the problem is that there are two distinct ideas of dimension that are being used here. One is mathematical, and the other is visual.

People probably tend to think in terms of cartesian coordinates, so anything they think of is visually embedded in the 3-d certsian system, and a circle "visually" to us is in 2 dimensions say, x and y.

However, in mathematics,, and specifically differential geometry, as has been pointed out, it is unnecessary to embed any curve in a higher dimensional space, so that a "line" in some arbitrary space is defined by the curvature of that space.

I was of the opinion that we were talking of visual dimensions, but that's been cleared up for e since, i was unaware of topology and all that jazz, but now i am I have plenty of studying to do in my spare time now.

Thanks to this thread. Why are you imposing "straight" on the concept of one-dimensional? The OP correctly did not. Fuzzy Logic said:.

Don't even think of a shape at all. Takes the numbers 1 to That is a straight, 1 dimensional line. Now when you count to 10, what's next after 10? Stop or loop back to 1? I'm not sure what a 'not straight' 1d line would be like Just a guess, but I would suppose it would be a non-linear line. As in not all points are evenly distributed. Count from 1 to 10 but skip 3,4 and 7. DaveC Gold Member. A 1 dimensional line can curve in higher dimensions, just like a 2 dimensional sheet of paper can be curved in a 3rd dimension.

A sheet of paper, curved, folded or spindled still has a 2 dimensional surface. To uniquely describe any point on the sheet of paper requires two and only two coordinates: x and y. Same with a line. When curved, it is still one dimensional.

To uniquely describe any point on the line requires one and only one coordinate. I can't see how a line, once curved, doesn't trace a two dimensional path. Nor how a sheet of paper, when curved or folded or spindled, doesn't enter a 3D space.

Nonlinear processes such as cabbeling and thermobaricity cause diapycnal motion as a consequence of isopycnal mixing.

The result is an additional diapycnal advection, which needs to be accounted for in water-mass analysis. They then quantify the diapycnal advection due to each of these nonlinear processes and show that they lead in total to a significant downward diapycnal advection, particularly in the Southern Ocean. The nonlinear processes are therefore another source of dense water formation in addition to high-latitude convection.

To maintain the abyssal stratification in the global ocean, these dense water masses have to be brought back toward surface layers, and this can occur by either diabatic or adiabatic processes. It has been known for decades that nonlinearities in tion equation to describe water-mass transformation the equation of state of seawater can lead to water-mass processes in the ocean.

These surfaces are mathematically well to surface fluxes, cabbeling and thermobaricity are due to defined i. The diapycnal advection due to neutral helicity is a This ambiguity in defining continuous density surfaces consequence of using continuous density surfaces as a is due to neutral helicity being nonzero in the ocean.

The need for this additional diapycnal velocity is due to the lateral 2.

We know that the pressure of pr 5 dbar. For these layered models, equation of state is nonlinear.

The errors arising from the way these surfaces are defined. As we will show pycnal gradients of pressure and temperature that are later, thermobaricity can cause a substantial amount of necessary to calculate diapycnal velocities caused by water-mass transformation in the global ocean, and the cabbeling and thermobaricity.

Quantifying cabbeling and thermobaricity and However, until further observations are made that im- the diapycnal advection due to neutral helicity prove our understanding of isopycnal diffusivities, we will in the global ocean not be able to decrease these errors in our calculations. Here, we will quantify the diapycnal advection caused For all following calculations, we will be using model by nonlinearities in the equation of state of seawater output from the Modular Ocean Model version 4 MOM4; [the diapycnal advection processes on the right-hand Griffies et al.

One of the issues with using model output is that, because of a lack of knowledge about realistic values for the isopycnal diffusivity, ocean models are run with an isopycnal diffusivity set in a way to improve the model output. If the choice of the isopycnal diffusivity K used in MOM4 is too large, we can expect the isopycnal gradients of properties to be too small and vice versa.

The diapycnal advection caused by cabbeling ecab on an v surface with an average pressure of dbar is shown in Fig. This figure shows that cabbeling causes diapycnal velocities on the order of 21 3 m s21 in large areas in the Southern Ocean. The strongest dia- pycnal velocities due to cabbeling are located in con- fluence zones of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current ACC.

These regions, such as the Brazil Basin in the Atlantic, the Agulhas retroflection in the Indian Ocean, and the confluence zone off New Zealand, are regions where subtropical water masses and water masses from the Southern Ocean have frontal boundaries, creating large isopycnal gradients of salinity, temperature, and pressure.

These large isopycnal gradients then lead to large diapycnal advection caused by cabbeling and thermobaricity.

Diapycnal velocities m s21 due to nonlinearities of the equation of state of seawater are shown on an v surface with an cropping density surfaces and in the Arctic Ocean.

Compared to cabbeling, which always produces negative downward diapycnal veloc- ities, thermobaricity also produces positive values an upward diapycnal velocity , mainly between and S.

The diapycnal advection due to neutral helicity ehel is shown in Fig. As for cabbeling and thermobaricity, the largest values are south of S, with the main difference to cabbeling and thermobaricity being that, instead of the diapycnal velocity being mainly downward, ehel produces patches of banded positive and negative values, both occupying similar areas. The only exception to this is the Pacific sector, where ehel is upward.

The sum of the diapycnal advection due to cabbeling, thermobaricity, and the diapycnal advection due to neu- tral helicity on this same v surface is shown in Fig. The sum of the zonal mean of ecab, etherm, and ehel is shown in Fig. In both of these figures, the largest values for the diapycnal velocities caused by these non- linear processes are surrounding the Antarctic Circum- polar Current and to a lesser extent along the outcropping density surfaces in the northern North Atlantic.

Inte- grating these diapycnal velocities globally, we derive diapycnal transports. A vertical profile of these trans- ports is shown in Fig. By contrast, the vertical structure of ehel is caused by the changing lateral velocities with depth and the spa- tial structure of the neutral helicity field. The global integral of these diapycnal transports in the ocean model caused by cabbeling, thermobaricity, and the diapycnal advection due to neutral helicity re- sults in a downward diapycnal transport of approxi- mately 6 Sv through all the density surfaces shown here.

This diapycnal transport is mainly located in the Southern Ocean. Compared to estimates of AABW production of 8. The diapycnal velocities due to nonlinearities of the using a mass budget; Orsi et al. The vertical profile of nonlinear diapycnal transports through v surfaces are shown for a the MOM4 model output and b the WOCE climatology. Blue lines are transports due to cabbeling, red lines are transports due to thermobaricity, green lines are transports due to neutral helicity, and black lines are the sum of these three processes.

There are no estimates of the diapycnal transport due to neutral helicity in the WOCE climatology because of the lack of values for lateral velocities. Because of the model not correctly representing water masses, the surfaces in a are lighter than in the WOCE climatology b [the v surfaces in a and b are aligned so that they have the same average pressures]. However, even though these dense water which would then lead to an underestimate of these masses are formed differently, both the Antarctic Bot- nonlinear diapycnal velocities assuming we are using a tom Water and the nonlinear diapycnal processes add to correct value for the isopycnal diffusivity.
