On the interplay between eddies, deep convection and downwelling in the Labrador Sea 

Figure: Vertical velocity over a section across the boundary current near Greenland, indicated by the red line in the inset figure. The section is plotted against distance from the coast (km)

Effects of a Freshening Boundary Current on Deep Convection and Eddy Activity in the Labrador Sea

Figure: Five year average winter (Feb - March) sea surface density (shading) of the Labrador Sea in a simulation mimicking the Great Salinity Anomaly. The white contours indicate the five year average winter MLD and the 200 (cm/s)2 contour of the five year mean EKE is shown in red.
