Abstract

Meltwater events (MWE) during and at the end of the last glaciation led to dramatic changes in the oceanic circulation of the North Atlantic combined with a strong reduction in deepwater formation or even a breakdown of the conveyor belt (Bond 1995; Bond and Lotti 1995; Broecker 1991; Seidov et al. 1996). These changes depend on (i) the amount of freshwater brought in and (ii) the locations of freshwater input and its transport path; that means the conditions to form one or several large freshwater lenses on top of the water column in the central Greenland, Iceland, and Norwegian (GIN) Seas.
