Features and variability of water mass characteristics along the SE-Greenland slope

Historical hydrographic data and the data from the standard sections of the project between Denmark Strait and Kap Farvel were successfully used to quantify the changing water mass composition of the overflow boundary current, to identify alternative pathways for the dense water recruiting to the overflow across the Denmark Strait sill and to derive geostrophic transports which conforms to the directly measured transports through the moored current meter array at 64° N. The analysis of the standard section data furthermore suggest a revision of the prevailing views on the downstream evolution of the overflow plume towards a different entrainment process.
