Trade winds ventilate the tropical oceans

Long-term observations indicate that the oxygen minimum zones in the tropical oceans have expanded in recent decades. The reason is still unknown. Now scientists at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Collaborative Research Centre 754 ‘Climate – Biogeochemical Interactions in the Tropical Ocean’ have found an explanation with the help of model simulations: A natural fluctuation of the trade winds. The study has been published in the international journal Geophysical Research Letters. —> Read More Here
