New study measures evolution of the North Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) since 1980

New study expands the understanding of contemporary decadal variability in the AMOC.

Investigating the role of Sea-Surface Salinity (SSS) in simulating historical AMOC decadal variation 25 February 2022

Investigating the role of Sea-Surface Salinity (SSS) in simulating historical AMOC decadal variation

This new study aims to advance decadal prediction models by exploring regionally-dependent coupled sea-surface dynamics at work in the Atlantic and Pacific in initialized prediction ensembles.

Compensation between meridional flow components of the Atlantic MOC 20 April 2016

Compensation between meridional flow components of the Atlantic MOC

Research supported by CPO's Climate Observation Division outlines new facts on the dynamics controlling Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (MOC) variability and highlights some of the unexpected interplay between the density variations in the deep portions of the western region and the direct wind forcing across the basin. 

Increased carbon dioxide suppresses AMOC variability in GFDL ESM2M simulation 24 March 2016

Increased carbon dioxide suppresses AMOC variability in GFDL ESM2M simulation

Research funded by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and published in the Journal of Climate found that increased carbon dioxide suppresses variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) in GFDL ESM2M simulation.
