  Information - OS1 Open Session on Ocean Circulation and Water Masses (including Outstanding Young Scientist Award Lecture)

Event Information
For the open session contributions concerning all aspects of the ocean circulation are welcome, reaching from regional to global scale. We also encourage submissions that do not fit to any of the other special sessions.

One aspect we would like to emphasize this year are water masses, their ventilation, spreading and transformation in the ocean interior. Topics include variability and possible trends of water mass properties and formation rates and mechanisms relating these changes to external forcing. Observational studies are as welcome as the presentation of model results and model-data intercomparisons.
