[1] Large-scale oceanic transports of nutrient and oxygen are estimated from selected hydrographic sections from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment spanning the world ocean. A so-called geostrophic inverse box model is used to calculate the velocity field across the transoceanic sections. The circulation is required, a priori, to conserve mass, salt, top-to-bottom silicate, and subsurface heat and PO( = 170P + O2). The resulting estimate of the time mean circulation is used to compute… CONTINUE READING
