Abyssal Channels in the Atlantic Ocean: Water Structure and by Eugene G. Morozov,Alexander N. Demidov,Roman Y.

By Eugene G. Morozov,Alexander N. Demidov,Roman Y. Tarakanov,Walter Zenk

This booklet is devoted to the examine of constitution and delivery of deep and backside waters above and during underwater channels of the Atlantic Ocean. The research relies on contemporary observations, research of historic information, and literature experiences. This method permits us to appreciate how water shipping and water mass prop- ties have replaced over the past years and many years. the focal point of our examine is at the propagation of backside waters within the Atlantic Ocean in response to new box facts at key issues. on the finish of the Twenties, the 1st essential examine of water plenty and backside topography of the crucial and South Atlantic was once performed from the German - seek vessel Meteor. This German Atlantic excursion was once one of many first cruises outfitted with the newly constructed echo sounder (fathometer): an compulsory p- needful for the research of backside morphology within the deep sea on an - erational base. the result of the day trip have been released via Wüst, Defant, and associates within the multivolume METEOR ebook sequence beginning with the cruise file via the ship’s commander (Spiess 1928, 1932). traditionally, this sequence of p- lications, intermittently interrupted via international battle II, was once the root for a few years of study into the improvement of contemporary techniques approximately Atlantic water lots and their stream schemes.
