    Joyce, Terrence M.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2007-09)
    In order to explain observed southward water transport of 2-3 Sv through Davis Strait, a simple extension of Godfrey's (1989) Island Rule and a 2-D idealized numerical model simulations were made for the flow around ...
