Four-Gyre Circulation in a Barotropic Model with Double-Gyre Wind Forcing
Journal of Physical Oceanography
Results from a barotropic vorticity equation model driven by symmetric, double-gyre wind forcing are described. The authors work in a regime in which the model reaches a state of turbulent equilibrium. The timeaverage of the statistically steady state exhibits a four-gyre structure, in contrast to the usual two gyres associated with symmetric double-gyre wind forcing. The four-gyre structure is found in model runs using either free-slip or superslip boundary conditions, and with eitherdoi:10.1175/1520-0485(2000)030<1461:fgciab>2.0.co;2 fatcat:jglniz66lzf5fomzw7kmhqwva4
