In an earlier WOCE newsletter (Ribbe & Tomczak, 1995) we reported on the development of an off-line radiocarbon validated tracer model for the Southern Ocean based on the Fine Resolution Antarctic Model (FRAM). During the initial stages of the project computational experiment were carried out with the model for an idealised oceanic tracer. We intended to verify the physical mechanisms that operate in the model and are responsible for removing atmospheric tracer and surface water. The results of these experiments have recently been reported in a series of papers (Ribbe & Tomczak, 1996a, 1996b, 1996c) and some very early results were published in this newsletter previously.
