A high-resolution, multi-level, primitive equation ocean model is used to examine the response of an idealized, flat-bottomed, eastern boundary oceanic regime on a beta-plane to constant ocean thermal and wind forcing by annual mean and seasonal mean climatologies. The focus of the study is the Leeuwin Current along the coastal region, from 20° S to 35° S, off Western Australia.
