Overview The ocean has absorbed 93% of global warming heat. This service by the ocean to life on Earth has not been without consequence. The oceans are warming rapidly, ocean species are being displaced and sea level rise threatens many coastal communities. The pathway for heat to enter the deep ocean is primarily through dense water formation in the North Atlantic and around Antarctica. This large-scale conveyor from the surface to the deep ocean is known as the Meridional Overturning... View Article
