Antarctic Bottom Water response to Varying Surface Fluxes

Snow, Kate

Description

Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) is one of the densest and most voluminous water masses of the global ocean. It forms the lower limb of the global overturning circulation and plays an important role in transporting carbon, heat and freshwater sequestered from the atmosphere to the deep ocean. Surface buoyancy fluxes modulate the production of AABW through the formation of Dense Shelf Water (DSW) on the Antarctic continental shelf. The DSW flows down the...[Show more]
