Abstract

NEWS AND NOTES SYSTEM MONITORS DAILY The instrumen t array turne d up to a resolution of about 1.5 Sv, or VARIATIONS IN ATLANTIC some surprising results, indicating about 8% of the mean value. This CIRCULATIO N a large range of variabilit y instead would be sufficient to detect any Th e Atlantic Meridional Over- of a decline in the circulation. The large, abrup t changes in the circu- turnin g Circulation (MOC), which dat a showed that the MO C can lation, which would help scientists is largely responsible for Europe's vary fro m as little as 4 to as much with more accurate climate change as 35 Sverdrups (Sv; 1 Sv = a flow predictions. war m climate, is though t to be susceptible to warmin g and a pos- of ocean water of 106 m 3 s -1.) The Result s fro m the first year yearlon g average of the MO C is sible slowdown. However, until of observations were published recently, scientists have not had aroun d 19 Sv, in agreement with in two papers in the 17 August earlier estimates. access to continuou s data to verif y 2007 issue of Science.
