Analysis of hydrographic and stable isotope data to determine water masses, circulation, and mixing in the eastern Great Australian Bight
Hydrographic and stable isotope data from waters in the eastern Great Australian Bight (GAB) sampled during March–April 1998 indicate that both mixing and evaporative processes are important on the shelf. Five water masses are defined on the basis of their temperature, salinity, δ 2H and δ 18O values. Two of these are end-members, the Flinders Current (FC) and the Great Australian Bight Plume (GABP), whereas the other three are a result of mixing between these two end-members. Water mass...[Show more]
