Reconstructing bottom water temperatures from measurements of temperature and thermal diffusivity in marine sediments
Summary: Temperature fields in marine sediments are mainly governed by the geothermal steady state heat flow and the bottom water temperature, which propagates into the sediment. Thus, the current sediments' temperature field stores the history of bottom water temperature variation. The aim of this work is the inverse modeling of the bottom water temperature variation from instantaneous measurements of the depth dependent temperature and the thermal diffusivity.
A wind-driven nonseasonal barotropic fluctuation of the Canadian Inland Seas
Summary: A wind-driven, spatially coherent mode of nonseasonal depth-independent variability in the Canadian Inland Seas is identified based on observational measurements and a numerical model over 2003-2013. This dominant mode of nonseasonal variability is partly related to the North Atlantic Oscillation. The mode is associated with net flows into and out of the Canadian Inland Seas as well as internal mass redistribution within the Canadian Inland Seas.
Transient tracer applications in the Southern Ocean
Summary: We use a suite transient Tracers measurements from aSouthern Ocean sector southeast of Africa collected from 1998 and 2012 to quantify ventilation, and change in ventilation. We found that the ventilation can be constrained by an Inverse Gaussian Transit time Distribution North of the Subantarctic Front. We do not find any significant changes in upper ocean Ventilation during this time-period.
