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

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

This ebook is devoted to the research of constitution and delivery of deep and backside waters above and during underwater channels of the Atlantic Ocean. The examine relies on contemporary observations, research of old facts, and literature experiences. This method permits us to appreciate how water delivery and water mass prop- ties have replaced during the last years and a long time. the point of interest of our research is at the propagation of backside waters within the Atlantic Ocean in keeping with new box info at key issues. on the finish of the Twenties, the 1st fundamental learn of water plenty and backside topography of the important 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 built echo sounder (fathometer): an compulsory p- considered necessary for the research of backside morphology within the deep sea on an - erational base. the result of the day trip have been released by means of Wüst, Defant, and co-workers within the multivolume METEOR e-book sequence beginning with the cruise document by way of the ship’s commander (Spiess 1928, 1932). traditionally, this sequence of p- lications, intermittently interrupted via global battle II, was once the root for a few years of analysis into the improvement of recent techniques approximately Atlantic water plenty and their stream schemes.
