      Summaries of this description are generally presented as maps of dynamic height contours around the Southern Ocean to show the predominantly zonal circulation (Fig. 1) and as a schematic diagram of the circulation for a typical vertical-meridional section to show the meridional flux of Cited by:   “The Southern Ocean is a wild and elusive place, an ocean like no other. With its waters lying between the Antarctic continent and the southern coastlines of Australia, New Zealand, South America, and South Africa, it is the most remote and inaccessible part of the planetary ocean, the only part that flows around Earth unimpeded by any landmass.

The higher-than-expected warming of intermediate-level waters in the Southern Ocean in recent decades has been reproduced in the latest series of global climate model simulations, which include time-varying changes in anthropogenic greenhouse gases, sulfate aerosols, and volcanic aerosols in the earth’s atmosphere ().The agreement between observations and state-of-the-art global climate Cited by:

      The Southern Ocean, also known as the Antarctic Ocean or the Austral Ocean, comprises the southernmost waters of the World Ocean, generally taken to be south of 60° S latitude and encircling Antarctica. As such, it is regarded as the second-smallest of the five principal oceanic divisions: smaller than the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans but larger than the Arctic Ocean.

The Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean is intended to provide a benchmark of the Southern Ocean biogeography knowledge, to fulfill the needs of biogeographic information for science, conservation, monitoring and sustainable management of the Southern Ocean, in the context of environmental change and increasing human pressure.

The Southern Ocean, also known as the Antarctic Ocean, was not officially recognized as a distinct body of water until the year Krill, lantern fish, and whales can all be found in this ocean's chilly waters.

Hofmann, in Antarctic Science,Vol. 20, No. 2 "That a single author could compile a work of such breadth is astounding, even considering that.

The Southern Ocean is the result of a history of nearly 40 million years marked by the opening of the Straits south of Australia and South America and intense cooling. The violence of its weather, its very low temperatures, the formation of huge ice-covered areas, as its isolation makes the Southern Ocean a.

This book examines in detail the impact of the extermination of whales on the Southern Ocean ecosystem and recommendations for control of the current state of whale populations are put forward. The perspectives of whale population recovery are estimated and : Springer International Publishing.

BIOMASS (Biological Investigations of Marine Antarctic Systems and Stocks) was a unique, large-scale, long-term, international research programme established in to investigate the ecology of the Southern Ocean.

Its main aim was to gain a greater understanding of the biological systems and stocks in the marine Antarctic environment, thereby providing a sound basis for the future management of the living resources within this immense ocean. Among the detractors of a formal designation is the National Geographic Society, which doesn't officially recognize the Southern Ocean.

But the respected body hasn't exactly closed the books. With an internationally lauded approach to conserving Southern Ocean ecosystems ([ 1 ][1]), the healthiest marine ecosystems on Earth, the Commission on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), has committed to adopting marine protected areas (MPAs) in the waters around Antarctica ([ 2 ][2]).

But conflict over MPAs has led CCAMLR member states to disregard the Cited by: Biology of the Southern Ocean - CRC Press Book First published inThe Biology of the Southern Ocean has been referred to as international research at its best and an invaluable reference.

Inthe International Hydrographic Organization delimited the waters within the Convergence as a fifth world ocean - the Southern Ocean - by combining the southern portions of the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and Pacific Ocean.

Unbroken by any other continental landmass, the Southern Ocean’s narrowest constriction is the Drake Passage, miles wide, between South America and the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Half of the responding countries supported 60 degrees south, while only seven preferred 50 degrees south as the ocean's northern limit. Even with a mere 50 percent support for 60 degrees, the IHO decided that since 60 degrees south does not run through land and 50 degrees south does pass through South America, 60 degrees south should be the northern limit of the newly demarcated : Matt Rosenberg.
