Ocean Dynamics May Drive North Atlantic Temperature Anomalies

Oct. 9, 2017

Although the Atlantic Mutidecadal Oscillation (AMO) is well documented, the underlying mechanism that drives it is unknown and remains up for debate. In a new study, AOS Faculty Member Rong Zhang presents compelling findings in support of the idea that ocean dynamics play a central role in the AMO. The paper, published in Geophysical Research Letters, was selected for an AGU Research Spotlight, published online October 9.
