2019-20 Honours project - Characterising upwelling of Circumpolar Deep Water at the Polar Front and investigating submesoscale processes associated with upwelling
The dataset was collected on the research voyage (IN2018_V05 on RV Investigator) and from satellite observations. The dataset includes in-situ data and satellite data collected at the Polar Front (PF) south of Tasmania in a region where the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) has a permanent meander upstream of the Macquarie Ridge. This study characterises the upwelling of Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) in a standing meander of the ACC in the PF south of Tasmania and investigates the submesoscale processes associated with upwelling.
