An overarching goal of ATLAS is to investigate the sensitivity of North Atlantic Ocean ecosystems to basin-scale physical processes. This report examines relationships between four pertinent climate indices and key physical variables using both output from a high-resolution ocean model and an observational dataset. After describing long-term mean conditions and determining seasonal cycles, we use a composite approach to create mean conditions for high and low states of each climate index. The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) shows cooler bottom conditions around the boundaries of the western subpolar gyre during a high state, which may be linke...
