Even though our study area was north of the one described by Lima and Castello (1995), there is an equatorward flow of the colder and fresher Plata plume water in the inner shelf (Piola et al., 2008a; Piola et al., 2008b).
In the December 1st Nature, four geophysicists led by James Keane (University of Arizona) make the case that the big basin initially existed much farther north, near latitude 60[degrees], and gradually migrated equatorward. They modeled how this shift, coupled with the gradual freezing of a global subsurface ocean early in Pluto's history, would stress and fracture the world's surface.
The influence of CCW is attributed to the equatorward flow occurring mainly during winterspring months (Ambriz-Arreola et al., 2012) which may be upwelled due the presence of mesoscale features originated by the steep bathymetry of the region (Salas et al., 2006; Ambriz-Arreola et al., 2012).
During 2001-2050, the warmed Antarctic stratosphere may lead to a weakened latitudinal temperature gradient (Figure 6(c)), which, following the thermal wind relationship, would be accompanied by a weakened westerly wind in the Antarctic stratosphere and an equatorward displacement of the southern subtropical jet (Figure 6(d)).
We only consider the period 1910-2011 (102 years), restricted to the region equatorward of 65[degrees].
