Abstract

On the basis of the many-year monthly average thermohaline data of the oceanographic array, we study some regularities of the seasonal cycle in the fields of temperature, salinity, and the characteristics of water masses in the Drake Passage. We obtain and analyze the amplitude and phase parameters of seasonal oscillations of the investigated quantities. By using the volumetric statistical T, S-analysis, we deduce quantitative estimates of the annual variations of the volumes of main water masses in the Drake Passage. Possible mechanisms responsible for the phenomena observed in this region are discussed.
