In particular, more dissipation in the upper ocean leads to stronger subtropical overturning cells, a broader thermocline, and higher thermosteric sea level; more dissipation in the deep ocean leads to stronger deep meridional overturning circulation [more evidence of these impacts is shown in Melet et al.
Influence of the meridional overturning circulation on tropical Atlantic climate and variability.
A new ocean observing system has been launched in the North Atlantic in order to understand the linkage between the meridional overturning circulation and deep-water formation.
However, the ability to predict interannual variations of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation is very low.
This is noteworthy, because as that cold water moves away from the shoreline, it can significantly impact ocean circulation, such as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC).
and Coauthors, 2013: Meridional overturning circulation and heat transport observations in the Atlantic [in "State of the Climate in 2012"].
The trends in MHT and meridional overturning circulation (MOC) caused by XBT biases are statistically significant after the 1990s, estimated to be 0.
He added that it is "very likely" that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation is connected to these abrupt climate variations.
The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation estimated from a now decade-long (2004-March 2014) trans-basin instrument array along 26[degrees]N shows a decrease in transport of -4.
and Coauthors, 2013: Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation slowdown cooled the subtropical ocean.
Many scientists have long believed that the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) weakened at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum (popularly known as the last ice age), but evidence of such a change was never uncovered.
The altered circulation pattern appears to be further modulated in high latitudes by residual snow cover and sea ice around the Canadian Archipelago and by a weakening of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation.
