The Earth’s climate is changing, due to global warming, impacting the ocean circulation around the world. As the ocean circulation distributes large amounts of energy around the world, this can alter climate drastically if changed. The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is a fundamental ocean component to comprehend climate...

The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is an important element in the Earth’s Climate System, and it leads to variations in the climate systems, such as heat transformation, carbon dioxide distribution, freshwater distribution, and extreme weather conditions. <br/>The dense water formation and export in the North Atlantic...

Before the year 1519, the Valley of Mexico was a closed basin and at the bottom of the valley, an extensive system of shallow lakes was formed. Within this lacustrine system, the capital of the Aztec empire, Tenochtitlan, was built. The Aztecs were known for their impressive constructions and complex hydraulic structures, of which the most...

The production of water masses formed by convection in the Labrador Sea (i.e. Labrador Sea Water, LSW) and its variability contributes to the variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). Several studies put the role of the Labrador Sea under renewed debate, and suggest a rather complex interplay between the production...

The Labrador Sea is one of the deep convection sites in the world's oceans and the water masses formed here are an important component of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). To study this linkage, one study in particular used an idealized model of the Labrador Sea where the density variations consists only of temperature...

The water masses exiting the Labrador Sea, and in particular the dense water mass formed by convection (i.e. Labrador Sea Water, LSW), are important components of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). Several studies have questioned the connection of the LSW production to the AMOC variability. This is partly due to the...

In this study, the application of a retaining wall was proposed as a solution for reducing the lateral displacement of the ballast layer, particularly in sharp curves and bridges. In this regard, a series of single tie push tests were performed on panels with shoulder ballast widths of 300 mm, 400 mm, 500 mm with and without the presence of L...

The Nordic seas are commonly described as a single basin to investigate their dynamics and sensitivity to environmental changes when using a theoretical framework. Here, we introduce a conceptual model for a two-basin marginal sea that better represents the Nordic seas geometry. In our conceptual model, the marginal sea is characterized by...

In this study, an idealized eddy-resolving model is employed to examine the interplay between the downwelling, ocean convection and mesoscale eddies in the Labrador Sea and the spreading of dense water masses. The model output demonstrates a good agreement with observations with regard to the eddy field and convection characteristics. It also...

In this study, we explore the downward branch of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) from a perspective in depth space (Eulerian downwelling) as well as from a perspective in density space (diapycnal downwelling). Using an idealized model, we focus on the role of eddying marginal seas, where dense water is formed by deep...

For more than five decades, the Mediterranean Sea has been identified as a region of so-called thermohaline circulation, namely, of basin-scale overturning driven by surface heat and freshwater exchanges. The commonly accepted view is that of an interaction of zonal and meridional conveyor belts that sink at intermediate or deep convection...
