equilibrium the circulation is characterized by the familiar upper-ocean western boundary currents and midlatitude gyres, with a strong Antarctic Circumpolar Current (see the surface buoyancy snapshot in Fig. 8a ). In the tropics, a strongly stratified thermocline overlies a weakly stratified interior, with the base of the thermocline at approximately 300 m in the case of enhanced upper mixing (indicated by buoyancy contours in Fig. 8b ), while the polar thermocline stratification is considerably weaker
