Recent studies suggest that the variability in Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) properties in the Scotia Sea on time scales up to decadal may be linked to changes in the baroclinicity of the Weddell gyre, with vertical variations in the density structure at the gyre's northern edge acting to control the export of AABW over the South Scotia Ridge and toward the mid-latitude South Atlantic. We test this hypothesis by analysing the AABW properties in fifteen occupations of the SR1b hydrographic… CONTINUE READING
