Study provides first-ever look at combined causes of North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean freshening
...rces analyzed matched the amount and rate at which fresh
water accumulated in the North Atlantic during much of the period from 1965 through 1995. "This synthesis allows us to judge which freshwater sources are the largest, but more importantly shows how the significance of different sources have changed...
