Subpolar mode water formation due to convection
Fig. 4.60 Distribution of subpolar mode water formation rate in density coordinates, in Sv per each 0.1 kg/m3 density interval. Heavy solid line labeled W/C indicates full Ekman pumping and cooling; heavy dashed line labeled WH/C indicates half Ekman pumping and full cooling; thin solid line labeled W/CH indicates full Ekman pumping and half cooling; thin dashed line labeled WH/CH indicates half Ekman pumping and cooling.
