Pathways and retention times in a biologically productive canyon system on the West Antarctic Peninsula

Abstract

Palmer Deep is a highly productive coastal canyon on the continental shelf of the West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP). Primary productivity in the canyon is hypothesized to be fueled by nutrients provided by the Upper Circumpolar Deep Water (UCDW), a water mass originating off the shelf. To evaluate the influence of UCDW on the canyon, we use the Regional Ocean… (More)
