Perfluoroalkyl Substances in the Western Tropical Atlantic Ocean
The dispersion of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in surface and deep-water profiles (down to 5845 m deep) was evaluated through the Western Tropical Atlantic Ocean (TAO) between 15°N and 23°S. The


Ocean circulation causes the largest freshening event for 120 years in eastern subpolar North Atlantic
It is found that wind-driven routing of Arctic-origin freshwater intimately links conditions on the North West Atlantic shelf and slope region with the eastern subpolar basins, revealing the importance of atmospheric forcing of intra-basin circulation in determining the salinity of the subpolar North Atlantic.

A Subannual Subsurface Pathway From the Gulf Stream to the Subpolar Gyre and Its Role in Warming and Salinification in the 1990s
The transport of warm, saline subtropical water to the subpolar gyre (SPG) in the North Atlantic has been the subject of a range of Lagrangian studies, establishing intergyre exchange on timescales

As decadal predictions start to become operational, the need to use, understand and extract information from them becomes essential. A climate index is a simple diagnostic quantity that can be used
Freshwater Export in the East Greenland Current Freshens the North Atlantic
Arctic Ocean freshwater content increased in the 2000s. Since variations in freshwater input into the North Atlantic Ocean can modify its properties, monitoring the freshwater export from the Arctic
Greenland Submarine Melt Water Observed in the Labrador and Irminger Sea
Helium and Neon distributions from 1994 to 2015 are used to identify and quantify submarine melt water (SMW) from the Greenland Ice Sheet in the Labrador and Irminger Sea. SMW fractions >0.2%
On the Recent Ambiguity of the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre Index
The so-called gyre index appears to be related to core aspects of the North Atlantic subpolar gyre, meridional overturning circulation, hydrographic properties in the Atlantic inflows toward the
The land ice contribution to sea level during the satellite era
Since 1992, there has been a revolution in our ability to quantify the land ice contribution to sea level rise using a variety of satellite missions and technologies. Each mission has provided
