Flow along and across the Aleutian Ridge
Abstract:During a synoptic hydrocast survey in September 1993 near the Aleutian Islands, net northward flow of Alaskan Stream water occurred through deep passes near 180 and 172W. This inflow (≈4 × 106 m3 s−1) was the source of the eastward flow in the Bering Sea north of the islands. The eastward flow, however, was weaker and more convoluted than the stream flow (≈7 × 106 m3 s−1, referred to 1000 db) south of the islands.

- The Journal of Marine Research publishes peer-reviewed research articles covering a broad array of topics in physical, biological and chemical oceanography. Articles that deal with processes, as well as those that report significant observations, are welcome. In the area of biology, studies involving coupling between ecological and physical processes are preferred over those that report systematics. Authors benefit from thorough reviews of their manuscripts, where an attempt is made to maximize clarity. The time between submission and publication is kept to a minimum; there is no page charge.
