North East Atlantic Ocean Circulation

Sketched ocean circulation pattern in the NE Atlantic Ocean, from Straume (2020). Note how the circulation closely follows the bathymetry. Shown are warm (red) and cold (blue) surface currents, warm (orange) and cold (cyan) intermediate currents, and deep currents (purple). The bathymetry is the GEBCO 2014 grid (Weatherall et al., 2015) and the currents are modified from Newton and Huuse (2017). GSR: Greenland – Scotland Ridge.
