Meridional overturning exchange with nordic seas

Objective

Using a combination of different observational techniques and model experiments, MOEN will monitor the total Atlantic inflow to the Nordic Seas and the Ireland-Scotland return overflow of dense water into the Atlantic during a two-year field phase and will study trends and variations of the fluxes on longer time scales. MOEN is a self-contained project but also acts as a component of the Arctic-Sub arctic Ocean Flux (ASOF) study.
