Antarctic Deep Water Rates of Export (ANDREX) project

The ANDREX project seeks to assess the role of the Weddell gyre in driving the southern closure of the meridional overturning circulation, in ventilating the deep global ocean, and in sequestering carbon and nutrients in the global ocean abyss.

Track of the ANDREX cruise: the ANDREX line (JR239 + JC30) goes from the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula to 30°E; the CLIVAR I6S section follows 30°E to the Antarctic continent, Sr04 goes from Kapp Norvegia (15°E) to the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula (the bathymetry is shown in greyscale)
