Abstract
  • The Gibraltar Experiment is a many faceted study of the dynamics and kinematics of the exchange between the Atlantic and Mediterranean through the Strait of Gibraltar (Bryden and Kinder, 1986). Net evaporation over the Mediterranean basin forces a surface inflow of Atlantic water and a nearly compensating deep outflow of saltier Mediterranean water through the Strait which together maintain the water and salt budgets for the Mediterranean Sea (Lacombe and Richez, 1982). The central hypothesis of the Gibraltar Experiment is that the narrowness and shallowness of the Strait combined with the dynamics of a two-layer flow controls the amount of exchange through the Strait. The Gibraltar Experiment field program was designed to measure the exchange between the Atlantic and Mediterranean and to diagnose the dynamical processes dominating the two-layer flow through the Strait of Gibraltar.
