Broecker, W.S., T.-H. Peng, J. Jouzel, and G. Russell, 1990: The magnitude of global fresh-water transports of importance to ocean circulation. Clim. Dyn., 4, 73-79, doi:10.1007/BF00208902.

Water-vapor transport from low to high latitudes in a given ocean and from one ocean to another must be compensated by a net flow of salt through the sea. A comparison is presented which shows that water-vapor fluxes derived from meteorological information, from an atmospheric general circulation model and from a radiocarbon-calibrated ocean box model are in first-order agreement.
