Arktisches Meereis und Zirkulation des Ozeans

  • 1947 Accesses


Klimaanomalien werden nicht nur durch die Atmosphäre-Meereis-Kopplung bestimmt, sondern auch die globale Ozeanzirkulation. Relativ warmes atlantisches Tiefenwasser fließt zwischen 300 bis 700 m Tiefe auf die Schelfgebiete des Arktischen Ozeans, wird hier abgekühlt, durch Meereisbildung salzhaltiger und dichter, sodass es absinken und im tiefen Ozean zurückfließen kann.
