Influence of the Atlantic sector of the circumpolar region on the dynamics and structure of oceanic waters

Influence of the Atlantic sector of the circumpolar region on the dynamics and structure of... By using the generalized data of measurements we determine the velocity of the Intermediary Subantarctic Current in the South and Tropical Atlantic. The mean value of this velocity is equal to 10cm/sec. According to indirect estimates, the velocity of the Bottom Antarctic Current is assumed to be equal to 4 cm/sec. The theoretical description of theT-, S-, and O2-fields on the basis of the solution of the problem of diffusion, from a periodic linear source in a moving anisotropic medium allows us to determine the amplitude of annual variations of the temperature of intermediate waters and estimate the coefficient of vertical diffusion in the layers of intermediate and bottom water masses. The basic hydrological characteristics of these waters are determined by the hydrometeorological processes running in the frontal zones of the south and north parts of the circumpolar current.
