The winter mixed layer depth was variable in the Irminger and Iceland Seas in the period 1990-2000, but reached much deeper in the Irminger Sea as a halocline limits vertical convection in the Iceland Sea. The ranges of the related variations in salinity, density, and nutrient concentrations were similar in both regions. The nutrient variations were proportionately greater in the Iceland Sea. Statistical relationships between mixed layer depth and surface water properties were stronger for the Iceland Sea. but interannual variations in advection had more effects in the Irminger Sea.
