Morin, P., Bacon, S., Mercier, H., Boisseson, E. D., & Louarn, E. (2009). Upper Labrador Sea Water in the Irminger Sea During a Weak Convection Period (2002–2006) : Volume 6, Issue 3 (11/09/2009). Retrieved from

Description: Laboratoire de Chimie Marine, Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer, Plouzané, France. Four cruises between 2002 and 2006 sampled physical and chemical tracers in the southern Irminger Sea during the period of weak convection in the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre. The upper Labrador Sea Water (uLSW) shows complex and time variable patterns reflecting different formation sites: Irminger Sea, South Greenland and Labrador Sea.
