CTD, XCP and LADCP data acquired during the June 2000 Discovery cruise 247 to Faroe Bank Channel are shown in a variety of graphical forms. Most of the data were collected as part of 17 sections run in a direction mainly across the path of the Faroe Bank Channel overflow and comprising approximately 200 stations. These data have been used to estimate the transport of overflow water, approx 1.8 Sv on average, but fairly time-variable. The entrainment into the overflow as well as the bottom stress and vorticity are also analyzed.

Girton, James B.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Sutherland, David A.; Price, James F. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-12)The overflow of dense water from the Nordic Seas through the Faroe Bank Channel (FBC) has attributes suggesting hydraulic control—primarily an asymmetry across the sill reminiscent of flow over a dam. However, this aspect ...
