Experimental large-scale oceanography

We develop experimental long-term monitoring of the Atlantic thermohaline circulation at key full-depth oceanic sections in the North and south Atlantic.

This research is targeted on the analysis of interannual to decadal scale variability of the major water mass characteristics, their transformation and formation along with the meridional transports estimated form the oceanic cross-sections.

The field programme is being funded by the Ministry for Education and Science of Russian Federation and Ministry of the Economic Development and Trade of Russian Federation under the long-term project "MERIDIAN".
