Temporal variability of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation between 20°S and 35°S 9 December 2015

Temporal variability of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation between 20°S and 35°S

The Meridional Overturning Circulation plays a critical role in global and regional heat and freshwater budgets by carrying water properties northward and southward within individual ocean basins. This COD-supported research, published in Geophysical Research Letters, examines altimetry-derived synthetic temperature and salinity profiles between 20°S and 34.5°S  to estimate the Meridional Overturning Circulation and meridional heat transport.

The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S 1 December 2015

The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S

CPO’s Climate Observation Division supported a paper published in Geophysical Research Letters. The goal of this manuscript--”The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S”--is assess how the historical expendable bathythermograph measurement errors may affect the meridional mass and heat transport across one key ocean section in the South Atlantic Ocean.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
