The calibration computations of the hydrothermodynamic characteristics in the northern and tropical Atlantic Ocean
The results of numerical experiments on computing the hydrophysical fields for the northern and tropical Atlantic Ocean carried out using two numerical models are analysed. A discrete analogue of the first model is developed using conservative schemes, and of the second using conservative-dissipation difference schemes. It is shown that the second model, having a spatial resolution, reconstructs the meridional heat transport and the vertical seawater motions better than the first one.
