straight line in Fig. 2a . The implication for the ocean is that if the flow between two regions is sufficiently constricted, then the exchange between the two regions should be dominated by the long time-scale component of the density (the salinity). This is in fact observed for marginal basins with narrow openings such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, Chesapeake Bay, and many estuaries, which have density fields dominated by salinity difference from the ocean rather than temperature

-dimensional circulation but also from its fundamental importance for the vorticity balance of the fluid. While the thermohaline circulation is often discussed in the context of the Atlantic Ocean, there are analogous circulations in numerous marginal seas, some in the Atlantic Ocean, in which water mass transformation takes place, such as the Greenland–Iceland–Norwegian (GIN) Seas, Labrador Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Adriatic Sea, and Persian Gulf. While the thermohaline circulation is often depicted as a two
