–Obhukov ( Louis 1979 ). The effect of the orographically induced gravity waves on momentum is parameterized by a linear theory and dimensional considerations ( Miller et al. 1989 ). The soil model parameterizes the content of heat and water in the soil, continental snow depth, and the heat of permanent ice over continents and seas ( Dümenil and Todini 1992 ). Vegetation effects are parameterized following Blondin (1989) . The oceanic component is the Océan Parallélisé (OPA) 8.2 ocean general circulation

Atmosphere Sea Ice Soil (OASIS 2.4; Valcke et al. 2000 ) coupling software package. No measures for flux adjustments are taken in the model. For the AGCM, a semi-Lagrangian transport method ( Rasch and Williamson 1990 ) is used for the advection of cloud water and water vapor, while the parameterization of Tiedtke (1989) is used to represent convection and that of Morcrette (1991) is used for radiation. The horizontal resolution of the OGCM is 2° × 2° cosine (latitude) with an increased meridional

drift is negligible in comparison with the interannual changes of 0.2°–1°C, which occurred in waters down to 1500 m during the transient simulations. The model ocean was global except for the Arctic seas, which were considered unimportant for this study and were blocked at the Greenland–Iceland–Scotland Ridge. No sea ice model was used, as the water properties in the (mainly Southern Hemisphere) sea ice regions were forced by prescribed and restoration fluxes in the same way as in open ocean regions

Niño-3 sea surface temperature anomaly 1 (SSTA) and the Indian Ocean dipole mode index 2 (IODMI: Saji et al. 1999 ), respectively. These monthly indices have been derived from the Hadley Centre Global Sea Ice and Sea Surface Temperature (HadISST) analyses datasets ( Rayner et al. 2003 ) for the period of 1979–2003. Our precipitation analysis has been carried out using a monthly gridded dataset (2.5° × 2.5°) from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP: Xie and

–Schubert convection, and a parameterization of the vertical momentum transport by cumulus convection are employed in the model. Different components of the GFDL CM2.1 model are coupled through the Flexible Modeling System (see online at ). The atmosphere, ocean, land, and sea ice exchange fluxes every 2 h, and fluxes are conserved within machine precision. The particular coupled experiment we study is the so-called 1990 control run, where 1990 values of tracer gases, insolation

Community–Hamburg (ECHAM4.6) and the Ocean Parallelise (OPA8.2) ocean model coupled together and developed to run on the Earth Simulator. The atmosphere component of the CGCM, T106L19 ECHAM4.6 ( Roeckner et al. 1996 ), is coupled to the ocean component of the OPA8.2 through the Ocean Atmosphere Sea Ice Soil (OASIS 2.4; Valcke et al. 2000 ) coupling software package. The OPA8.2 ocean modeling system was developed by the Laboratoire d’Oceanographie Dynamique et de Climatologie (LODYC) team in Paris
