One-way and two-way coupling of Ocean-Atmosphere Models
DERF Workshop, April 2001
range weather prediction models commonly assume that the ocean always
forces the atmosphere and disregard the feedback effect of the atmosphere on the ocean.
Most of the observational studies, on the other hand,
indicate that away from the deep tropics the atmosphere
tend to force the ocean.
b. There isvery limited knowledge on the characteristics and causes of
unusually long lasting anomalies.
