GEOL 207 Environmental Geology Ocean Systems - When wind blows over water it transfers energy causing water to move - Because continents get in the way of water flow, gyres are created. - - Salinity effects freezing point o Salt water creates a linear graph - Thermocline, Halocline, and Pycnocline - - - North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW) is a deep water mass formed in the North Atlantic Ocean. Thermohaline circulation of the world's oceans involves the flow of warm surface waters from the southern hemisphere into the North Atlantic. - The Antarctic bottom water (AABW) is a type of water mass in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica with temperatures ranging from -0.8 to 2 °C (31 °F), salinities from 34.6 to 34.7 psu. - - Surface flow is warmer and shallow - Cool subsurface flow is colder, saltier, and deeper
