By Edwin Schiele. Ocean surface currents redistribute heat around the world and
have a profound effect on the world's climate. Nowhere is this clearer than in ...
The global oceanic conveyer belt (shown above in a simplified illustration), is a
unifying concept that connects the ocean's surface and thermohaline (deep ...
Today's climate system is influenced by the ocean's conveyor-like global
circulation. Cold, salty waters sink to drive the conveyor, and warm surface
The oceans are mostly composed of warm salty water near the surface over cold,
less salty water in the ocean depths. These two regions don't mix except in ...
Underwater currents mix the ocean's waters on a global scale. A process known
as thermohaline circulation, or the ocean conveyor belt, drives these deep ...
A factor not as well known, thermohaline circulation, occurs deep within the
ocean and acts like a conveyor belt as oceans absorb, store, and redistribute vast
