The hydrography of the Greenland Sea and its role in the Arctic Ocean - Nordic Seas' thermohaline system / J. Meincke, B. Rudels, H. Friedrich, Detlef Quadfasel.

Title: The hydrography of the Greenland Sea and its role in the Arctic Ocean - Nordic Seas' thermohaline system / J. Meincke, B. Rudels, H. Friedrich, Detlef Quadfasel.
Author(s): Meincke, J.,
Rudels, B.,
Friedrich, H.,
Quadfasel, Detlef,
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Cambridge: Sea Ice Group, Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge
In: ESOP. European Subpolar Ocean Programme. Sea ice - ocean interactions. Volume 1. (1996.),
Abstract: The waters entering the Arctic "mediterranean" sea are transformed partly into a low-salinity, cold, upper layer and partly into cold, dense, deep waters which recross the Greenland-Scotland Ridge. The dense waters sink into the deep North Atlantic to supply the North Atlantic Deep Water. The formation of dense water by slope convection in the Arctic Ocean and by open-ocean convection in the Greenland Sea is discussed. During a reduction of the deep convection in the Greenland Sea, the Greenland Sea deep-water renewal occurs by advection of deep waters from the Arctic Ocean. Observed changes in the temperature and salinity of the Greenland Sea Deep Water are used to estimate the vertical diffusion coefficient in the deep layers and the renewal time of the deep salinity maximum, which originates from the Eurasian Basin. A lower convection activity in the Greenland Sea was found to influence primarily the deep-water circulation internal to the Arctic mediterranean sea.
