Science webinar: Australia’s boundary current pathways to the deep ocean

October 22, 2019 2:30 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Overview The ocean has absorbed 93% of global warming heat. This service by the ocean to life on Earth has not been without consequence. The oceans are warming rapidly, ocean species are being displaced and sea level rise threatens many coastal communities. The pathway for heat to enter the deep ocean is primarily through dense water formation in the North Atlantic and around Antarctica. This large-scale conveyor from the surface to the deep ocean is known as the Meridional Overturning... View Article

In this study, CLEX researchers use two years of measurements from a flux mooring combined with satellite data and model outputs to understand the seasonal changes in air‐sea fluxes and the role of ocean currents in controlling ocean surface temperatures in the southeast Indian Ocean.

Students and ECRs have an opportunity to take part in a voyage to a standing meander of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) south of Tasmania. They will undertake a 3-dimensional survey of the velocity and density structure of the meander, deploy a fleet of EM-APEX profiling floats and conduct time series measurements.
