Abstract

The circulation of seawater of constant density under the action of stationary wind is reproduced by using a numerical dynamic model. The computational noise appears in the field of vertical velocities in the form of two-step waves. We carried out a series of numerical experiments with variable vertical resolution and the coefficient of horizontal turbulent viscosity. The improvement of resolution enabled us to give a correct description (both qualitative and quantitative) of the horizontal structure of vertical motions in the bottom layer and decreased the error in the field of vertical velocities at depths greater than 1000 m. We conclude that it is reasonable to take into account the dependence of the coefficient of horizontal turbulent viscosity on the vertical coordinate.
