The abyssal ocean is primarily filled by cold, densewaters formed aroundAntarctica and collectively referred to asAntarcticBottomWater (AABW).At steady state,AABWmust be consumed in the ocean interior at the same rate it is produced, but howandwhere this consumption is achieved remains poorly understood.Here, estimates of abyssal water mass transformation by geothermal heating and parameterized internal wave–driven mixing are presented. This study uses maps of the energy input to internal waves… CONTINUE READING
