a The meridional energy transport anomaly by the atmosphere δFA (red) and by the Ekman flow δFE (blue), and the sum (black) in PW, and b the ratio of the changes in Ekman to atmospheric energy transport δFE/δFA (black solid), the ratio of Ekman to atmospheric gross stability in CNT SE/SA (black dashed), and the ratio of Ekman to atmospheric meridional energy transport in CNT FE/FA (black dash-dot), as a function of Ts − Td. Red corresponds to the experiments with varying forcing amplitudes FS0 and blue to those with varying forced latitude bands φ0. All estimates are the average anomalies at 10°S and 10°N
