MONACO: Meridional Overturning at 26°N and North Atlantic heat COntent

PI: Neil Wells, School of Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton.

Time series of MOC components from 2004 to 2008 MONACO aims to understand the links between the MOC and meridional heat transport using data from the RAPID observing system with information inferred from Argo oats about subannual to interannual variability of oceanic heat content and sea surface temperatures in the North Atlantic. The work will investigate connections between the MOC array at 26N and ocean heat storage changes from 10N to 70N, look for connections between ocean heat content and sea surface temperature/air-sea uxes, and provide observational evidence that will be key for validation of ocean models.
