Oceanic heat transport onto the Amundsen Sea shelf through a submarine glacial trough
Glaciers which drain the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) into the Amundsen Sea are accelerating and thinning rapidly. These observations have been attributed to the regional oceanography wherebyExpand

Explosive Cyclogenesis: A Global Climatology Comparing Multiple Reanalyses
A global climatology for rapid cyclone intensification has been produced from the second NCEP reanalysis (NCEP2),the25-yrJapaneseReanalysis(JRA-25),andtheECMWFreanalysesovertheperiod1979‐2008.AnExpand

Southern Ocean deep-water carbon export enhanced by natural iron fertilization
The addition of iron to high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll regions induces phytoplankton blooms that take up carbon. Carbon export from the surface layer and, in particular, the ability of the ocean andExpand

Mesoscale vertical motion and the size structure of phytoplankton in the ocean
Phytoplankton size structure is acknowledged as a fundamental property determining energy flow through ‘microbial’ or ‘herbivore’ pathways. The balance between these two pathways determines theExpand

Large-scale circulation around the Crozet Plateau controls an annual phytoplankton bloom in the Crozet Basin
The circulation in the vicinity of the Crozet Plateau in the Southwest Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean is examined using hydrographic sections, Argo floats, surface drifters, and satelliteExpand

Diatom carbon export enhanced by silicate upwelling in the northeast Atlantic
Diatoms are unicellular or chain-forming phytoplankton that use silicon (Si) in cell wall construction. Their survival during periods of apparent nutrient exhaustion enhances carbon sequestration inExpand

Effect of meteorological conditions on interannual variability in timing and magnitude of the spring bloom in the Irminger Basin, North Atlantic
Interannual variability in the spring bloom in the Irminger Basin, northern North Atlantic, is investigated using SeaWiFS-derived chlorophyll-a (chl-a) concentration and satellite or model-derivedExpand

Mesoscale frontal dynamics: shaping the environment of primary production in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current
Abstract The frontal regions of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) differ from other parts of the ACC due to higher phytoplankton concentrations and primary production rates. We hypothesise thatExpand

A climatology of Australian severe thunderstorm environments 1979–2011: inter-annual variability and ENSO influence
Severe thunderstorms present a significant threat to property and life in Australia during the warm season (September to April). However, these relatively infrequent events are poorly understood inExpand
