Fig. 9.3 Annual mean values of near-bottom salinity, volume flux and fresh-water flux derived from Bering Strait moorings as indicated by colouration. For flux estimates, blue (from A3) represents the entire strait, cyan (from A2) only the eastern channel and grey the entire strait, estimated from A2 only. Dashed lines indicate uncertainty in the means (Adapted from Woodgate et al. 2006)

Table 9.1 Fluxes of volume and fresh water through Bering Strait. Contributions of the Alaskan Coastal Current to the fresh-water flux have been included except in the estimate for inter-annual variation, for which there are insufficient data
