[1] Observations between 1000 and 2750 m, from a site in the 2800-m deep part of the western basin of the Mediterranean Sea located in between the Provencal and Algerian subbasins, indicate large variations in water mass properties and stability that are associated with, but not directly caused by, dense-water formation to the north of the site. These variations are apparently dominated by local convection induced by small-scale eddies and propagation of inertial waves in stratified and… CONTINUE READING
