Physical oceanography during POLARSTERN cruise ARK-XVIII/1a, supplement to: Ronski, Stephanie; Budéus, Gereon (2005): Time series of winter convection in the Greenland Sea. Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 110, C04015

Stephanie Ronski & Gereon Budéus
In spite of the lack of bottom reaching convection in the Greenland Sea since the 1980s, convection continues to ventilate the Greenland Gyre down to intermediate depth. The variability of this ventilation activity is determined here annually for eight winters according to a multiple criteria catalogue, applied to annual summer conductivity-temperature-depth transects along 75°N. The comparison of the ventilation depths with the meteorological forcing, the ice cover, and the stratification of the water column shows...
