Sea ice velocity in the Fram Strait monitored by moored instruments
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-10-04)
The Fram Strait sea ice velocity was measured by means of a new method using moored Doppler Current Meters in the period 1996–2000. Almost 3 years of ice velocity observations near 79N 5W are analyzed. The average ...
Ice shelf water overflow and bottom water formation in the southern Weddell Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-02-17)
Cold shelf waters flowing out of the Filchner Depression in the southern Weddell Sea make a significant contribution to the production of Weddell Sea Bottom Water (WSBW), a precursor to Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW). We ...
Greenland-Scotland overflow studied by hydro-chemical multivariate analysis
Hydrographic, nutrient and halocarbon tracer data collected in July-August 1994 in the Norwegian Sea, the Faroe Bank Channel (FBC), the Iceland and Irminger Basins and the Iceland Sea are resented. Special attention was ...
Water mass modification over the continental shelf north of Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-08-13)
We use new data from the southern Weddell Sea continental shelf to describe water mass conversion processes in a formation region for cold and dense precursors of Antarctic Bottom Water. The cruises took place in early ...
The Iceland–Faroe inflow of Atlantic water to the Nordic Seas
The flow of Atlantic water between Iceland and the Faroe Islands is one of three current branches flowing from the Atlantic Ocean into the Nordic Seas across the Greenland–Scotland Ridge. By the heat that it carries along, ...
Interannual variability and ventilation timescales in the ocean cavity beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-20)
Multiyear time series of ocean current and temperatures from beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica, demonstrate both seasonal and interannual variability. The seasonal signal is visible at all measurement sites, ...
