Shallow , Intermediate , and Deep Overturning Components of the Global Heat Budget

  title={Shallow , Intermediate , and Deep Overturning Components of the Global Heat Budget},
  author={Lynne D Talley},
The ocean’s overturning circulation and associated heat transport are divided into contributions based on water mass ventilation from 1) shallow overturning within the wind-driven subtropical gyres to the base of the thermocline, 2) overturning into the intermediate depth layer (500–2000 m) in the North Atlantic and North Pacific, and 3) overturning into the deep layers in the North Atlantic (Nordic Seas overflows) and around Antarctica. The contribution to South Pacific and Indian heat… CONTINUE READING
