storm track, which overwhelms the evaporative contribution to salinity, the latter being small for the near-freezing surface temperature in the northern subpolar North Pacific. Accompanied with this halocline is a mean temperature inversion, with the temperature decreasing upward from about ∼400-m depth toward the surface ( Fig. 9a ), where it is cooled by strong heat loss associated with turbulent heat flux and net radiative cooling. Similar to the long-term climatology of stratification there, the

are negligible and scale with the mesh size and order of accuracy. The numerical method conserves vorticity and energy for infinitesimally small time steps in the inviscid and unforced case, whereas enstrophy is slightly decaying for the upwind flux used. The weak formulation of this finite-element method is given in the appendix . The method provides an alternative to classical numerical methods and is well suited for complex-shaped domains, mesh, and order ( h and p ) refinement. b. Linear
