Research project: Arctic Deep Water Rates of Export (ANDREX) - Dormant

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.

To do this, the ANDREX team and a group of U.S. collaborators set out to obtain measurements of hydrography, velocity and a range of ventilation tracers and biogeochemical substances along the Weddell gyre's outer rim.

The ANDREX team encompasses scientists from four U.K. institutions: the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOC), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the University of East Anglia (UEA), and the University of Manchester; one German institution: the Alfred-Wegener-Institut, Bremerhaven; and one U.S. institution: the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

PI: Dr Alberto Naveira Garabato.

Funding agency: the U.K.'s Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI).
