    The ocean surface rapidly exchanges heat, freshwater, and gases with the atmosphere, but once water sinks into the ocean interior, the inherited properties of seawater are closely conserved. Previous water-mass decompositions ...
  • Turbulence and diapycnal mixing over the East Pacific Rise crest near 10°N 

    Thurnherr, Andreas M.; St. Laurent, Louis C. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-08-13)
    Turbulent mixing plays an important role in the return path of the global overturning circulation of the ocean. Previous measurements indicate that much of the mixing takes place near topography, in particular near seamounts ...
