Oxygen Saturation Surrounding Deep Water Formation Events in the Labrador Sea From Argo‐O2 Data

Abstract.

"Deep water formation supplies oxygen‐rich water to the deep sea, spreading throughout the ocean by means of the global thermohaline circulation. Models suggest that dissolved gases in newly formed deep water do not come to equilibrium with the atmosphere. However, direct measurements during wintertime convection are scarce, and the controls over the extent of these disequilibria are poorly quantified [...]"
