The impact of polar mesoscale storms on northeast Atlantic Ocean circulation
Description: In this paper the authors present simulations with a global, eddy-permitting ocean/sea-ice circulation model, run with and without a parameterization of polar lows. They conclude that polar lows are important for the large-scale ocean circulation and should be accounted for in short-term climate predictions. [Source: Nature Geoscience]
