Variability of sea ice melt and meteoric water input in the surface Labrador Current off Newfoundland

Abstract:

The respective contributions of saline (Atlantic and Pacific water) and freshwater (sea ice melt, meteoric water) components in the surface Labrador Current are quantified using salinity, δ18O, and nutrient data collected between 2012 and 2015 east of Newfoundland to investigate the seasonal variability of salinity in relation with the different freshwater contributions. Nutrient data indicate that the surface saline water is composed on average over 2012-2015 of roughly 62% Atlantic Water an...
