Deciphering Patterns and Drivers of Heat and Carbon Storage in the Southern Ocean

Chen, Haidi; Morrison, Adele; Dufour, Carolina O.; Sarmiento, Jorge L


The storage of anomalous heat and carbon in the Southern Ocean in response to increasing greenhouse gases greatly mitigates atmospheric warming and exerts a large impact on the marine ecosystem. However, the mechanisms driving the ocean storage patterns are uncertain. Here using recent hydrographic observations, we compare for the first time the spatial patterns of heat and carbon storage, which show substantial differences in the Southern Ocean, in contrast with the conventional view of simple...[Show more]
