PS34E:
Vertical Transport: Pathways from the Surface to the Interior IV Posters

Session ID#: 92566

Session Description:
The vertical transport of properties, including carbon, oxygen, and heat, is crucial for the production and export of organic carbon, ventilating the subsurface ocean, and modulating ocean-atmosphere exchange. However, vertical transport is poorly constrained observationally, and a challenge for models because vertical velocity is highly sensitive to small-scale processes and model resolution. We will discuss both physical and biological mechanisms for vertical transport on scales ranging from the mesoscale to smaller scales, and including processes affected by surface forcing, seasonality of the mixed-layer, restratification, advection, subduction, mixing, sinking and topography. We will address the underlying dynamics and kinematics for vertical transport of water and properties using multi-platform observations, modeling and theory, while exploring three-dimensional Lagrangian pathways and their spatial and temporal scales of coherence. The effects of such transport on the biological production and export of organic matter is of interest, as also, the large-scale and long-term implications for exchange between the upper ocean and interior.
