Supplementary data:


On the basis of hydrographic observations taken in the vicinity of Denmark Strait, a primitive equation model is used to investigate physical mechanisms that control the exchange through the strait. The dense water transport is topographically controlled and predictions by Whitehead [1998] and Killworth and McDonald [1993] are consistent with numerical model results. The distribution of temperature and thickness of the modeled plume is in good agreement with the high-resolution hydrographic data.
