Record #173126:

The East Greenland Spill Jet / Robert S. Pickart, Daniel J. Torres, Paula S. Fratantoni.

Title: The East Greenland Spill Jet / Robert S. Pickart, Daniel J. Torres, Paula S. Fratantoni.
Author(s): Pickart, Robert S.
Torres, Daniel J.
Fratantoni, Paula S.
Date: 2005.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2005.), Vol. 35(6) (2005)
Abstract: High-resolution hydrographic and velocity measurements across East Greenland shelf break south of Denmark Strait reveal intense, narrow current, named East Greenland Spill Jet, banked against upper continental slope, resulting from dense water cascading over shelf edge and entraining ambient water. Current resides beneath East Greenland/Irminger Current and transports roughly 2 Sverdrups of water towards equator. Strong vertical mixing occurs during spilling, although entrainment farther downstream is minimal. Vorticity analysis reveals increase in cyclonic relative vorticity within jet is partly balanced by tilting vorticity, resulting in sharp front in potential vorticity. Article presents other components of Irminger Sea boundary current system, including absolute transports.
