Abstract:

The deep basins of the world oceans are filled with waters of very low temperature. A fundamental problem of oceanography concerns the nature of the sources of that water their locations and temporal variations of strength. A stability analysis of temperature and salinity data recently taken in the Norwegian sea shows that bottom water probably does not form in that area. Author
