A reconstruction of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation

A reconstruction of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation A study published in Geophysical Research Letters shows that observed sea surface temperature could help study variability of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and its impacts on climate and extreme weather.  Researchers emphasized the importance of sustaining and combining ocean observing platforms with satellite observations.  This study …
