A comparison of observed (left) and modeled (right) time series noble gases in the upper waters near Bermuda as measured by Rachel Stanley. The white circles indicate sampling depths, and the heavy white line is the approximate mixed layer depth as a function of time. Note the subsurface supersaturation that occurs in the summer for Ar, Kr, and Xe due to heating effects.
