||The OVIDE project studies the variability of the north Atlantic subbpolar gyre circulation based on repeated hydrography and current measurements, satellite observations, diagnostic and prognostic models. Here, we present an analysis of volume and heat transports between Greenland and Portugal from the 2002 OVIDE data. The results are compared to a previous analysis based on 1997 data (4x project). We focus on the thermohaline circulation. The thermohaline circulation, deep western boundary current and heat flux variability are correlated.
