dc.description.abstractDeep convection is a process in which the mesoscale ocean circulation and atmospheric forcing work together to weaken the ambient stratification and to cause surface waters to sink to great depths with large vertical velocities. This process plays an important role in bottom and intermediate water formation and ultimately in the large-scale thermohaline circulation, which in turn plays a central part in determining global climate.en_US
