This is lecture 18 in the series "Introduction to the Mathematics of Climate" offered at the University of Minnesota in 2014 with the support of MCRN and The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications.
This lecture applies the analytic tools of classifying equilibria developed in lectures 14-17 to thoroughly analyze Stommel's Ocean Box Model. It explores the effect of changing the flow resistance on the existence of equilibria in preparation for the next lecture's discussion of bifurcations.
