Multiple equilibria in the Southern Ocean thermohaline circulation and links to global climate
Entry ID: ASAC_2960

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2960

See the link below for public details on this project

The ocean's thermohaline circulation (THC) plays a fundamental role in global climate, transporting heat poleward and regulating the uptake of anthropogenic CO2. Multiple steady-states in the THC have been identified in the North Atlantic, including an "off" state where no deep water is ... View entire text
