and western coasts, Δ b ≡ b e − b w . In particular, if the ocean’s bottom at z = − H is flat, then The diagnostic (2) needs to be revised in the presence of bottom relief, in which case Ψ is not fully determined by τ and Δ b ( Hirschi and Marotzke 2007 ). Comparisons with ocean models indicate that the approximation (2) works very well when the bottom is flat and captures the time variability of the MOC even with topography. In the case where the bottom is flat the diagnostic (2

–salinity variability is found for the SODA product. The discrepancy indicates that the physics of SODA reanalysis system differ fundamentally from those of the CCSM3. Lack of in situ salinity observations in the 1970s makes it impossible to evaluate the model performance in simulating salinity variability associated with the PMV for the present day. Therefore, a caveat of the present study is that this mechanism of PMV may be model dependent. Because of the paucity and short duration of the observational records
