Record #171169:

Deep convection in the Irminger Sea forced by the Greenland tip jet / Robert S. Pickart, Michael A. Spall, Mads Hvid Ribergaard, G.W.K. Moore, Ralph F. Milliff.

Title: Deep convection in the Irminger Sea forced by the Greenland tip jet / Robert S. Pickart, Michael A. Spall, Mads Hvid Ribergaard, G.W.K. Moore, Ralph F. Milliff.
Author(s): Pickart, Robert S.
Spall, Michael A.
Ribergaard, Mads Hvid.
Moore, G. W. K.
Milliff, Ralph F.
Date: 2003.
In: Nature. (2003.), Vol. 424(6945) (2003)
Abstract: Shows that most likely cause of convection is low-level atmospheric jet from lee of Cape Farewell, with high heat flux and strong wind stress curl. Land station data and model show that deep convection can occur when North Atlantic Oscillation is high. Mechanism is significantly different from those in Labrador Sea and Mediterranean.
