Simulations reveal the influence of reduced and enhanced wind stress on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation.
Coastal wind patterns correlate with mass strandings of dolphins, suggesting that storm-induced upwelling could be influencing cetaceans’ behavior.
Solving the case of ocean eddy death could help climate modelers better represent the effect of wind.
Researchers turn to the shipping industry for data on ocean surface currents.
Previous research suggested that the intrusion of low-nutrient Gulf Stream water into the Mid-Atlantic Bight would reduce productivity, but a new study finds that it can also lead to chlorophyll hot spots.
Biogeochemical floats provide an improved picture of ocean mixing and oxygen movement in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Recent research offers new insights into exchanges of water between the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas, which play critical roles in the climate-regulating Atlantic overturning circulation.
Transient long-term changes in the strength of the Indonesian Throughflow are unexpectedly linked to circulation changes in the remote high-latitude North Atlantic.
Researchers used a wave tank to study the movement of plastic particles experimentally and to understand the role of particle density in drift behavior.
