New look at the water exchange between the Arctic and North Atlantic in Iceland basin

Cover Page

Abstract


Based on the multi-year current observations along 59.5 N in the Subpolar North Atlantic multi-jet transport of arctic water along Reykjanes Ridge eastern slope producing Iceland-Scotland overflow water (ISOW) in Iceland Basin is revealed. Main jet properties as well as their contribution to the deep water transport are discussed.
