Image : Fresh water content (FWC) decadal shift
Figure 2. Decadal SLP (hPa) (solid contours and colors) and geostrophic wind direction (vectors) in 1950s through 2000s. A, B, C, and D depict mooring locations, and black lines bound the BG Region. In 1990s, the Arctic High shifted southeast, and this explains relocation of the center of FWCL accumulation observed in 1990s (Figure 1).
