Abstract

The complex ocean response to a tandem hurricane forcing in the Gulf of Mexico is investigated. Two different ocean models forced by a high-resolution atmospheric model are used for the purpose. The simple ocean model can not reproduce the sea surface temperature (SST) cooling patterns mostly due to the lack of the Loop Current and other circulation patterns in the initial conditions. Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) is capable of producing fine upper ocean features under the hurricane forcings. It is found that the (SST) is 1-3°C cooler in some locations as compared with the satellite observation.
