Data collected by the ESA’s Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) has helped scientists produce what they are calling the most accurate gravity maps of global ocean currents ever.

Unstable Atlantic Deep Ocean Circulation Under Future Climate Conditions

Mssion data from GOCE will allow it to live on in another research project aimed at understanding ocean currents.

How Cold, Deep Ocean Waters Influence Sea Surface Temperatures
2013-07-26 06:04:28

Newly published research from Oregon State University has revealed new details on the forces behind El Nino and could lead to more refined predictions for global warming.

Satellites Stay Current On Ocean Currents

2012-01-23 08:09:14

A massive pool of fresh water in the Arctic Ocean -- a result of melting ice and river runoff -- has been discovered by British scientists who believe it is expanding and could lower temperatures in Europe by causing the ocean current to slow down.
