Short summary
Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) in the South Atlantic Ocean has experienced basin-scaled freshening from 2005 to 2014, reflected by the Argo gridded products. Two zonal sections of WOCE observation also revealed a similar quasi-decadal signal. Our analysis revealed that such freshening was induced by the increase of freshwater input in the AAIW ventilation region and the decrease of Agulhas Leakage transport.
