Environmental conditions in the Labrador Sea in Spring 2001

By R.M. Hendry, R.A. Clarke, J.R.N. Lazier, and I.M. Yashayaev


The upper layers of the Labrador Sea were observed to be warmer, saltier, and less dense in the summer of 2001 compared with conditions in 2000. These changes seem to be due largely to advection: there is no evidence for convective overturning during the winter of 2000-2001 to depths greater than 500 m.
