Southern ocean dynamics and biogeochemistry in a changing climate: introduction and overview

Downes, Stephanie; Weijer, Wilbert; Jeffery, Nicole; Mazloff, Matthew; Russell, Joellen


The Southern Ocean has a unique place in our climate system. It is a region of extremes, where the world's strongest ocean currents, the strongest wind regime, the most extensive sea ice cover, and the largest ice sheets interact (for example, see the recent review by Rintoul and Naveira Garabato, 2013). In addition, it houses a very productive ecosystem that sequesters a significant fraction of the anthropogenic CO2 in the ocean (Sabine et al., 2004; Takahashi et al., 2012). Studying...[Show more]
