  • Effect of critical latitude and seasonal stratification on tidal current profiles along Ronne Ice Front, Antarctica 

    Makinson, Keith; Schröder, Michael; Østerhus, Svein (American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-30)
    The ice front region of Ronne Ice Shelf lies near the critical latitude of the semidiurnal M2 tide, the principal tidal constituent in the southern Weddell Sea. Here the Coriolis frequency almost equals the M2 tidal ...

  • Ice shelf water overflow and bottom water formation in the southern Weddell Sea 

    Foldvik, Arne; Gammelsrød, Tor; Østerhus, Svein; Fahrbach, E.; Rohardt, G.; Schröder, Michael; Nicholls, Keith W.; Padman, L.; Woodgate, R. A. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-02-17)
    Cold shelf waters flowing out of the Filchner Depression in the southern Weddell Sea make a significant contribution to the production of Weddell Sea Bottom Water (WSBW), a precursor to Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW). We ...

  • Water mass modification over the continental shelf north of Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica 

    Nicholls, Keith W.; Padman, L.; Schröder, Michael; Woodgate, R. A.; Jenkins, Adrian; Østerhus, Svein (American Geophysical Union, 2003-08-13)
    We use new data from the southern Weddell Sea continental shelf to describe water mass conversion processes in a formation region for cold and dense precursors of Antarctic Bottom Water. The cruises took place in early ...
