The Global Heat Budget Air-sea exchanges of heat   create  Heat source into the ocean is solar radiation There are several heat loss terms  latent, conduction, longwave radiation, reflected  solar Ocean circulation moves heat (advection)

The Heat Budget   Total heat flux (Q t ) = Solar radiation (Q s ) - Latent heat loss (Q e ) - Conductive heat loss (Q h ) - Longwave radiation (Q b )    Q t  =  Q s  - Q - Q h  - Q b

Heat Loss Terms   Latent heat flux (Q e )     Energy required to evaporate water Conductive (or sensible) heat flux (Q h )   Loss to turbulent exchange with atmosphere Typically small Longwave radiation (Q b )  Net thermal IR emission from ocean
