Vertical transport in the ocean due to sub-mesoscale structures: Impacts in the Kerguelen region

Rosso, Isabella; Hogg, Andrew; Strutton, Peter G; Kiss, A E; Matear, R.J.; Klocker, Andreas; van Sebille, Erik


The summertime phytoplankton bloom near the Kerguelen Plateau is in marked contrast to the low-chlorophyll conditions typical of the Southern Ocean and is thought to arise from natural iron fertilisation. The mechanisms of iron supply to the euphotic zone in this region are poorly understood, and numerical studies of iron transport have until now omitted fine-scale (sub-mesoscale) dynamics which have been shown to significantly increase vertical transport in other parts of the ocean. We present...[Show more]
