A major Atlantic current is at a critical transition point

New evidence suggests that the larger system the Gulf Stream is part of, called the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), is approaching a tipping point that could cause dramatic shifts in global weather patterns.

Atlantic Ocean currents weaken, signalling big weather changes - study

The Atlantic Ocean's current system, an engine of the Northern Hemsiphere's climate, could be weakening to such an extent that it could soon bring big changes to the world's weather, a scientific study said on Thursday.

Climate change: Weakening in Gulf Stream points to dramatic tipping point

Climate change may not be as gradual as scientists previously assumed. In fact, recent evidence points to an environmental "tipping point" that could drastically change the climate and appearance of the continents.

Climate change is weakening the ocean currents that shape weather on both sides of the Atlantic

Since the end of the last ice age, a swirling system of ocean-spanning currents has churned consistently in the Atlantic, distributing heat energy along the ocean surface from the tropics toward the poles, with heavy, cold water slowly flowing back toward the equator along the bottom of the sea. Collectively known as the Atlantic Meridional […]
