But it is critical to understand factors such as the El Nino/La Nina cycle (a South Pacific climate pattern that affects the amount of storm-destroying "windshear"), the thermohaline circulation (a global ocean current guided by water density and salt content) and the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation (a cycle of warmer and cooler sea-surface temperatures).
The discussion will focus specifically upon the extent to which changes in thermohaline circulation strength have contributed to climate changes of the past, and the extent to which a leading global climate model is able to reconcile the rclevant geological constraints.
These include the melting of the Greenland ice sheets and the collapse of a global ocean current known as the thermohaline circulation.
This movement of the ocean conveyor, called thermohaline circulation, is driven by differences in water temperature and salinity (saltiness).
Well, they are small cogs in a big turning wheel, which is sometimes called the ocean conveyor belt, or thermohaline circulation.
One outcome could be the collapse of a global ocean current system known as the thermohaline circulation, said the researchers.
A shutdown of the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation system leading to colder winters is considered highly unlikely this century.
