Short summary
In this study, the influence of a spatio-temporally variable seawater conductivity on ocean-circulation-induced magnetic signals is investigated. To simulate the ocean-circulation-induced magnetic field, a combination of an ocean general circulation model (OMCT) and an electromagnetic induction model is used. It is found that a spatially varying seawater conductivity has a significant impact on the temporal variability of the induced magnetic field.
