FESOM1.4, currents around Antarctica

Shown are details of the ocean circulation in the largest current on earth – the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. This current circulates around Antarctica and therefore connects the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current transports about 150 times more water than all Earth's rivers combined.

FESOM1.4 circulation in the Fram Strait, 1km resolution

The Fram Strait between Greenland and Spitsbergen is the only deep-water passage connecting the Arctic with the world oceans. Here, two strong ocean currents meet: At the eastern part the remnants of the relatively warm Atlantic waters from the Gulf Stream enter the Arctic Ocean. Along the western part of the strait, cold water from the Arctic Ocean flow southward to the Atlantic Ocean. The animations show how complicated the dynamics of these two currents are, including numerous variability and eddy activity.

Model: FESOM 1.4
Domain: Global
Number of surface nodes: 1.2 million.
Forcing: CORE II atmospheric forcing.
Resolution: 1km in the wider Fram Strait area
