Temporal variability of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation between 20°S and 35°S

Wednesday, December 09, 2015

The Meridional Overturning Circulation plays a critical role in global and regional heat and freshwater budgets by carrying water properties northward and southward within individual ocean basins. This COD-supported research, published in Geophysical Research Letters, examines altimetry-derived synthetic temperature and salinity profiles between 20°S and 34.5°S  to estimate the Meridional Overturning Circulation and meridional heat transport.

The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S

Tuesday, December 01, 2015

CPO’s Climate Observation Division supported a paper published in Geophysical Research Letters. The goal of this manuscript--”The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S”--is assess how the historical expendable bathythermograph measurement errors may affect the meridional mass and heat transport across one key ocean section in the South Atlantic Ocean.
