Latest Thermohaline circulation Stories
In the ocean near Antarctica, an international research team has solved the mystery of how deep and mid-depth ocean waters are mixed.
The intense, small scale storms known as polar lows could have a tremendous impact on oceanic water circulation and climate predictions, a team of researchers from the US and UK have discovered.
Climate scientists have long debated whether floodwaters from melting of the Laurentide Ice Sheet flowed northwest into the Arctic first, or east via the Gulf of St. Lawrence to weaken ocean thermohaline circulation and have a frigid effect on global climate.
A new record of past temperature change in the tropical Atlantic Ocean's subsurface provides clues as to why the Earth's climate is so sensitive to ocean circulation patterns.
New research by teams of Australian and US scientists has found there has been a massive reduction in the amount of Antarctic Bottom Water found off the coast of Antarctica.
A current, called North Icelandic Jet, contributes to key a component of ocean circulation.
The research vessel Polarstern of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association will arrive back at its homeport of Bremerhaven after a seven-month expedition on Friday, 20 May.
Increased Agulhas "leakage" significant player in global climate variability.
Oceanographers are monitoring a vast expanse of fresh water in the Arctic Ocean that could spill into the Atlantic, something that could result in unpredictable changes in the ocean currents that give Western Europe its moderate climate.
Scientists and explorers will shortly set off on an expedition aiming to discover how Arctic sea ice melts.
