Figure 21. SST from the EB model with and without time-varying MLD forcing

Comparison of the model SST with and without time variations of MLD forcing. Top: H is the observed mean MLD from TAO moorings (Fig.14). Bottom: H is the observed time-varying MLD (Fig.13). Both time series are during year 10. The lower panel is demeaned (same figure as Fig.19 with different contour intervals); the upper panel has zero mean.
