The Energetics of Southern Ocean Upwelling

Hogg, Andrew McC.; Spence, Paul; Saenko, Oleg A.; Downes, Stephanie M.


The ocean’s meridional overturning circulation is closed by the upwelling of dense, carbon-rich waters to the surface of the Southern Ocean. It has been proposed that upwelling in this region is driven by strong westerly winds, implying that the intensification of Southern Ocean winds in recent decades may have enhanced the rate of upwelling, potentially affecting the global overturning circulation. However, there is no consensus on the sensitivity of upwelling to winds or on the nature of the...[Show more]
