Vertical density gradient in the eastern North Atlantic during the last 30,000 years

Rogerson, Mike; Bigg, Grant R.; Rohling, Eelco; Ramirez, J.

Description

Past changes in the density and momentum structure of oceanic circulation are an important aspect of changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and consequently climate. However, very little is known about past changes in the vertical density structure of the ocean, even very extensively studied systems such as the North Atlantic. Here we exploit the physical controls on the settling depth of the dense Mediterranean water plume derived from the Strait of Gibraltar to obtain the...[Show more]
