Measuring oxygen concentrations to improve the detection capabilities of an ocean circulation observation array

  title={Measuring oxygen concentrations to improve the detection capabilities of an ocean circulation observation array},
  author={Catherine E Brennan and Richard J. Matear and Klaus Keller},
[1] The North Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (MOC) may weaken or even collapse in response to anthropogenic climate forcing, with potentially nontrivial socioeconomic impacts. One currently implemented MOC observation system uses temperature and salinity (as well as other) observations along a zonal transect in the North Atlantic. The resulting MOC estimate has, however, a relatively low signal-to-noise ratio due to large internal variability and observation errors. Observations of… CONTINUE READING
