In 2017, an ocean research team launched an unprecedented effort to understand what drives ocean currents in the overlap regions between surf zones and continental shelves.
Two years of mooring observations at the edge of the continental shelf show that wind stress and upwelling control the inflow of some of the warmest water observed at an ice shelf front in Antarctica.
A simple algorithm obtains short-term variations in upwelling, which show that the subsurface Kuroshio waters can upwell directly into the East China Sea shelf under the advection of the Kuroshio.
Advances in observations and modeling are providing new insights into the dynamic Antarctic Slope Current and its critical role in Earth’s climate.
