Ocean - Ice Shelf Interaction: Prydz Bay
Entry ID: ASAC_1058

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: ---- Public Summary from Project ----
Floating ice shelves interact with the oceans. They drive a vertical overturning circulation, causing relatively warmer water to be transported into the shelf cavity. This warm water melts the shelf, creating a less dense and relatively fresh water that flows out from under the ice shelf. Ice shelves around the Antarctic Continent contribute ~2000 Gt.a-1 of ...

Quality The CTD data are processed by Mr Mark Rosenberg. The procedures that are followed are to the standard required by WOCE. The CTD's temperature sensors are calibrated at the CSIRO Marine Laboratories. The conductivity sensor to standard seawater using guildline salinometers. Accuracies are ~0.001 degrees, ~0.002pss78, rms residual ~0.002pss78.
Access Constraints Any one is welcome to use the available calibrated and processed data. We like to know who is using the data, and for what purpose. The main issue is that our own science activities are not compromised.
