A study led by Denis L. Volkov analyzes the system of ocean currents in the Atlantic Ocean, characterized by a northward flow of warm and salty water in the upper layers and a southward flow of colder and fresher water at depth, referred to as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). By redistributing heat and other properties, the AMOC influences the global and regional climate, weather, sea level, and ecosystems. Climate models suggest that the AMOC may slow down towards the end of this century in response to the emission of greenhouse gases.
