Abstract
We describe results of an experiment in which the Hamburg Large-Scale- Geostrophic ocean general circulation model was driven by a spatially corre— lated white noise fresh water flux superimposed on the climatological fluxes. In addition to the red noise character of the oceanic response, the model exhibits pronounced variability in a frequency band around 320 years. The centers of action of this oscillation are the Southern Ocean and the Atlantic.
