Investigation of variabilities in decadal and interdecadal scales in the component of the thermohaline circulation and in the temperature of the sea surface in the South Atlantic, taking into consideration the set of data supplied by simulations with the ocean-atmosphere coupled model.We will analyze the results of the execution of several centuries of coupled model comprising the University of Miami Oceanic Model (Micom) and the CCM3 atmospheric model of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). These simulations are executed on supercomputers of the Los Alamos National Laboratories. In the first year, the work will be undertaken by a Brazilian researcher visiting Los Alamos. (AU)
