poleward. While the Leeuwin Current is primarily a winter current, it does flow all year and is characterized by low salinity water. Expectations are that the Leeuwin Current, in providing a flow of warm, more southerly waters, may have a role to play in supporting the development of those tropical cyclones that occur in late spring (November) and early autumn (March). This makes this region a climatologically sensitive basin because the warming of the ocean surface may significantly change the genesis

the model, including temperature and salinity, are configured for the North Atlantic grid using Levitus climatology. Detailed description of this model, its skill assessment, and relevant results were presented in Chaudhuri et al. (2011a , b) . A major goal of this effort was to study the mean response of the GS to representative low and high NAO condition/forcing. This model was able to realistically reproduce the GS path ( Chaudhuri et al. 2011a ) and was then used to study the impact of

sediments expel water and contract because of a salinity contrast). The finer-grained beds also contain bidirectional ripples, interpreted as due to the influence of tides. The coarser-grained beds have been interpreted as being deposited during river-flood conditions, whereas the finer-grained beds represent low-stage interflood conditions ( Gugliotta et al. 2015 ; Figure 4 ).

with Levitus mean annual temperature and salinity, then spun up for 500 yr in a physics-only mode. Overall ecodynamics, biogeochemistry, and photochemistry were implemented simultaneously at this point. A minimum time scale often cited for approach to the upper-ocean biotic steady state is 3 yr ( Sarmiento et al. 1993 ; Moore et al. 2002 ; Chu et al. 2003 ). Results reported here are extracted from no earlier than the third full annual cycle. Although carbon monoxide is controlled within the

may become thinner in the future, resulting in H 2 S bubbles entering the atmosphere (e.g., Humborg et al. 1997 ). Both the salinity and the potential temperature increase with depth in the Black Sea waters. Data reported in Figure 1 of Neretin and Volkov ( Neretin and Volkov 1999 ) are used in this paper. They refer to the seawater vertical temperature distribution measured on 7 November 1993 at station 4010 (43°30′N, 31°45′E; sea depth: 1910 m). Studies of the hydrophysical and hydrochemical

low salinity of small rivers draining thick, sandy soils in central Amazonia. Conversely, the accentuation of trends observed downstream seems to be due to organic matter decay, which is expected to take place in the floodplain as water slowly enters the stream channel from temporary storage. This leads to the release of CO 2 ( 13 C depleted) and nitrogenous dissolved species (NO 3 − and DON) and symmetrically to the removal of O 2 . In the model M2, outputs are adjusted by prescribing ad
