Summary
Abstract: The geostrophic shear associated with the meridional overturning circulation
is reflected in the difference in density between the eastern and western
margins of the ocean basin. Here we examine how the density difference across
30°S in the upper 2 km of the Atlantic Ocean (and thus the magnitude of the
shear associated with the overturning circulation) has changed between the
last glacial ... View entire text
