ACC basic model

class veros.setups.acc_basic.ACCBasicSetup(override=None)[source]

Bases: VerosSetup

A model using spherical coordinates with a partially closed domain representing the Atlantic and ACC.

Wind forcing over the channel part and buoyancy relaxation drive a large-scale meridional overturning circulation.

This setup demonstrates:
  • setting up an idealized geometry

  • updating surface forcings

  • constant horizontal and vertical mixing (switched off IDEMIX and GM_EKE)

  • basic usage of diagnostics
