Observing and modeling changes in the Atlantic MOC

By Stuart A. Cunningham and Robert Marsh


The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) is defined, and our present understanding of MOC driving mechanisms is summarized. Evidence for the changing MOC is reviewed, covering recent developments in observing and modeling the MOC, and the climatic consequences of MOC variability.

In the context of what is presently known about the MOC, the evidence for a recent slowing trend is considered
