Record #139453:

Three-dimensional observations of a deep convective chimney in the Greenland Sea during winter 1988/89 / W.M.L. Morawitz, and five others.

Title: Three-dimensional observations of a deep convective chimney in the Greenland Sea during winter 1988/89 / W.M.L. Morawitz, and five others.
Author(s): Morawitz, W. M. L.
Date: 1996.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (1996.), Vol. 26(11) (1996)
Abstract: Temperature data are used to study evolution of 3D temperature field. Chimney structure reaching depths of over 1000 m is seen SW of gyre centre during March, with spatial scale of 50 km and time scale of 10 days. It breaks up in 3-6 days. 1D vertical heat balance adequately describes changes in total heat content from autumn until break-up, when horizontal advection becomes important. 1D mixed layer model reproduces bulk temperature and salinity changes surprisingly well. Comments on salinity changes, energy balance, deep water production rate and presence of Arctic Intermediate Water follow.
