Abstract Bottom photographs across the Nova Scotian continental rise show effects of an intense bottom current at 4800–5000 m that decreases in strength upslope to tranquil near-bottom conditions at 3200–4000 m. Apparently weak currents are present above 3200 m. Long-term, geologically significant flow parallels the bathymetric contours toward the southwest, but significant short-term variability in direction is indicated by orientations of small-scale bedforms. The Western Boundary… CONTINUE READING
