1 2008 ROMS/TOMS European Workshop Saint Martin d'Heres Campus Grenoble, France (1) University of Lisbon, CGUL, IDL (2) University of Hamburg, Center for Marine and Atmospheric Research (ZMAW) Sensitivity of Iberian upwelling to climate change: a numerical simulation with ROMS forced by RACMO A2 scenario José Alves (1) Pedro M A Miranda (1) Nuno Serra (2)

2 Summary Characterize the upwelling field in terms of sea surface temperature, 3D currents (U,V and W) and sea surface height for the year x 30 year simulations ( ERA-40, RACMO Control, RACMO A ) Identify tendencies in terms of number, intensity and duration of upwelling events Detailed study during the year 2000 (U, V, W, SST, SSH) ECMWF – ERA RACMO ROMS

14 40 year simulation forced by ERA-40 ECMWF Surface wind( m/s) U mean (m/s) V mean (m/s) Wind turned to more Northerly Implying more frequent (simulated) upwelling Decade Mean angle(  ) Climate change impacts on upwelling

15 The upwelling episodes were identified through the analyses of sea surface temperature time series. The threshold considered to identify an upwelling event was a decrease in SST of at least 2  C in less than 1 week, followed by an increase of the same magnitude in a similar time period. Number of events

16 RACMO model surface winds at Cape Carvoeiro From , it is observed an increase in the wind intensity, although the mean direction has not changed. Surface wind (m/s) Mean U V Surface wind (m/s) Mean U V Mean Mean angle (  ) Mean Mean angle (  )

21 Increase in the number of events of short duration (1 week) and long duration (4 weeks), decrease in the number of events of medium duration (3 and 4 weeks), more interdecadal variability CONTROL A2 Upwelling duration

23 Conclusions ROMS forced by ERA-40 Increase in the decadal number of upwelling events from 1960 to 2000 due to change in the mean wind direction. ROMS forced by RACMO control run ( ) Number of upwelling events almost constant RACMO fields do not include observed climate trends ROMS A2 scenario ( ) 10% increase in the number of upwelling events (vs Control run) due to an increase in the wind intensity A simulated upwelling Increased event duration variability (More long and short events) Slight increase in mean event intensity Increased interdecadal variability

31 Quando o modelo ROMS foi forçado com dados do ECMWF-ERA40, no período , verificou-se um aumento do número de episódios de upwelling, enquanto que quando se utilizou o forçamento do modelo RACMO, para o mesmo período, se verificou que o número de episódios de upwelling se manteve praticamente constante. Nas projecções para o final do século XXI [ ] (modelo RACMO) verificou- se um aumento do vento junto ao Cabo Carvoeiro e um consequente aumento do número de episódios de upwelling, cerca de 10 % em relação ao verificado no período No Cabo Carvoeiro a maioria dos episódios de upwelling eram e vão continuar a ser de longa duração (4 semanas ou mais) e de baixa intensidade (2<  T<3), embora se tenha verificado um ligeiro aumento na intensidade dos episódios. O número de dias de upwelling por ano praticamente não sofre alteração.
