The Antarctic convergence

Year: 2005
From collection: General archive
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The Antarctic convergence represents an important climatic boundary between air and water masses, and is also an approximate boundary for the Southern Ocean, surrounding the Antarctic continent. The water around the land mass is cold and with a slightly lower salinity than north of the convergence zone. The area is also rich in nutrients, providing a key support for the ecosystems in the Southern Ocean.
