Growth and decay of the Equatorial Atlantic SST mode by means of closed heat budget in a coupled General Circulation Model

Tropical Atlantic variability is strongly biased in coupled General Circulation Models (GCM). Most of the models present a mean Sea Surface Temperature (SST) bias pattern that resembles the leading mode of inter-annual SST variability. Thus, understanding the causes of the main mode of variability o...
