controls the energy input into the ocean and changes the amplitude of the wave response. This sensitivity is thus similar to the sensitivity to the SMF amplitude ( τ 0 ), which is fully investigated in section 6 . The characterization of the oceanic response to the forcing is investigated in section 2c and examples are given in section 4 and illustrate that for the range of parameters considered, the envelope does not affect the wave response.

) relation, which relates the meridional barotropic transport to the curl of the wind stress, which has become the building block of theories to predict the vertical structure of the circulation ( Pedlosky 1996 ). World Ocean circulations based on this idea have been calculated by Godfrey (1989) and more recently by Risien and Chelton (2008) using QuikSCAT scatterometer data. However, both idealized numerical experiments ( Holland 1972 ; Hughes and de Cuevas 2001 ) and reconstructions of the North
