North Atlantic and North Sea climate change: curl up, shut down, NAO and ocean colour

Article English OPEN
Pingree, RD;

The strength of the North Atlantic Current (NAC) (based on sea-surface elevation sloped derived from altimeter data) is correlated with westerly winds (based on North Atlantic Oscillation [NAO] Index data over a nine year period [1992-2002] with 108 monthly values). The... View more
