North Atlantic Ocean Circulation Stable or Faster

GreenTracker| A key assumption of current climate change models is that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation will slow down, as greenhouse gases warm the planet and melting ice adds freshwater to the ocean.

Warm, freshwater is lighter and sinks less readily than cold, salty water.

New NASA measurements of the ‘global ocean conveyor belt that helps regulate climate around the North Atlantic, show no significant slowing over the past 15 years. The data suggest the circulation may have even sped up slightly in the recent past.’ via Science Daily
