Paper on what controls the heat distribution in the Southern Ocean:

Heat distribution in the Southeast Pacific is only weakly sensitive to high‐latitude heat flux and wind stress,
Journal of Geophysical Research - Oceans, 124, https://doi.org/10.1029/2019JC015460. Article /
Description: Using a numerical modelling technique called adjoint modelling, we examined the factors that control the heat distribution the recently ventilated Southeast Pacific sector of the Southern Ocean.
We were somewhat surprised to find that the distribution was only weakly sensitive to high-latitude atmospheric processes.
Our paper on machine learning applied to Argo float data:

Unsupervised clustering of Southern Ocean Argo float profiles,
Journal of Geophysical Research - Oceans, https://doi.org/10.1029/2018JC014629. Article /
Description: We used unsupervised classification, a machine learning technique, to objectively identify groups of Southern Ocean temperature measurements with similar vertical structures.
This approach may be useful for automatically locating structures in climate data, which is important given the ever increasing volume of observational and model data.

Local and remote influences on the heat content of the Labrador Sea: an adjoint sensitivity study,
Journal of Geophysical Research - Oceans, 123. doi:10.1002/2018JC013774.
Description: Using a numerical modelling technique called adjoint modelling, we examined the factors that control the heat content of the climatically-important Labrador Sea, which is a site of heat and carbon exchange between the surface and the deep interior ocean.
We found and tested an unexpected connection between Labrador Sea heat content and winds along the remote West African shelf.

How does Subantarctic Mode Water ventilate the Southern Hemisphere subtropics?,
Journal of Geophysical Research - Oceans, 121, doi:10.1002/2016JC011680.
Description: Using a high-resolution numerical model of the Southern Ocean, we identified and examined a relatively efficient pathway for transporting heat and carbon from the surface ocean into the interior ocean, where it can potentially be sequestered for many decades to centuries.
Our paper on the long-term response of the SO to wind stress changes:

The transient response of the Southern Ocean pycnocline to changing atmospheric winds,
Geophysical Research Letters, 38, L15604, doi:10.1029/2011GL048145.
Description: Observations from the last several decades show a significant increase in the strength of westerly winds over the Southern Ocean, but an appreciable change in the tilt of constant density surfaces (isopycnals) has not yet been detected there.
We used an idealized numerical model to demonstrate that it may take many decades to centuries for Southern Ocean density structures to respond to changes in wind stress, due to coupling with the rest of the ocean.
