Abstract

The dynamics and thermodynamics of the Norwegian and Greenland Seas are investigated using a three-dimensional primitive equation ocean circulation model. The horizontal resolution of the model is 1° in the zonal direction and 0.5° in the meridional direction. The vertical structure is described by 15 levels. The model is driven by both annual mean and seasonally varying wind and thermohaline forcing. The connections of the Norwegian and Greenland Seas with the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean are modelled with an open boundary condition. The simulated currents are in reasonable agreement with the observed circulation.
