A monitoring system for heat and mass transports in the South Atlantic as a component of the Meridional Overturning Circulation
Estancia San Ceferino, Buenos Aires Argentina, May 8, 9, and 10, 2007
Objectives of the workshop:
The main objective of this workshop is to get together scientists with current or proposed programs in the South Atlantic to foster collaborations leading to the establishment of a monitoring system for meridional heat and mass transports in the South Atlantic and inter-ocean exchanges as a component of the Meridional Overturning Circulation. The importance of the measurements were already established in the CLIVAR South Atlantic meeting that took place in Angra dos Reis, Brazil in February 2003 see http://www.clivar.org/organization/atlantic/SACOSreport.pdf). Our motivation
is partly based on the recommendations from that meeting.
