FIGURE 11.32. Meridional transport of fresh water by the Atlantic from three surface-flux calculations: BR-Baumgartner and Reichel (1975); SBD-Schmitt et al. (1989); and IH-Isemer and Hasse's (1987) evaporation estimates combined with Dorman and Bourke's (1981) precipitation values. Also shown are direct measurements at 24° N by Hall and Bryden (1982), and 11° N by Friedrichs and Hall (1993). All are summed relative to an estimated Arctic southward export due to the Bering Strait through flow and the water budget of the Arctic itself. From Schmitt (1994) and Stewart (1995).

corresponding to a transport of saltwater northwards into the North Atlantic. This salinization is thought to play an important role in preconditioning the surface waters of the Atlantic to convection when exposed to cooling in polar latitudes.
