Fig. 4

Left panels are the snapshots of the EPV-based streamfunction φ app (solid and dotted line contours for positive and negative values, respectively, with an interval of 60 m 2/s) and thickness anomaly (color shading, normalized). Right panels are the snapshots of the zonal component of velocity u (color shading, m/s). These snapshots have been adapted from the 20th cycle of the model experiment, wherein the period of the oscillatory forcing is T =4.5 years; the reference layer thickness is H =100 m, and the equatorial deformation radius is \(\sqrt {c^*/\beta ^*}=87~\text {km}\).
