DEFINITION
Atmosphere-Mixed Layer Ocean Model

A model of the ocean–atmosphere system that consists of a general circulation model of the atmosphere coupled with a model of the oceanic mixed layer.

In climatic applications, the oceanic mixed layer is that part of the ocean that stores the seasonal heat anomaly and is typically represented in a very simple manner. Atmosphere–mixed layer ocean models are commonly used to study equilibrium climatic response.
