以下原文獻連結是有網友提供的,其他資料是白菜找的,但白菜看完整篇期刊都沒看到與"Southern Ocean current flows faster than Amazon"的資訊或字樣,而是在探討混合層變化對南極海的影響,讓我不經覺得連結是否正確?!

篇名:Zonally asymmertric response of the Southern Ocean mixed-layer depth to the Southern Annular Mode

作者:J. B. Sallee, K. G. Speer and S. R. Rintoul

出版年份:14 March 2010

雖然是新文章,不過感覺比較偏向利用Argo來模擬,看不太懂(= =)。

取Argo進行七年的溫深資料,進一步以相對變化瞭解混合層(Mixed Layer Depth, MLD)與SAM之關係。

也針對MDL的改變對於生產力的影響做探討。

SAM是Southern Annular Mode, "refers to an oscillation of atmospheric mass that results in changes of the westerly winds over the Southern Ocean." (Sallee et al, 2010)

基於前述原因,

白菜再度Google資訊。

真正的CSIRO報導在這裡:

似乎是發現的洋流流量大約是40倍的亞馬遜河,且是由日籍及澳籍學者共同的研究成果。
