Short summary
About half of the warm Atlantic water that enters the Norwegian Sea flows between Iceland and the Faroes. Here it crosses the Iceland-Faroe Ridge and dynamically interacts with the cold, dense and deep return flow across the ridge. This flow is not resolved in climate models and the lack of interaction prevents realistic heat anomaly propagation towards the Arctic.
