Current and former SIPERG members contribute to a discussion on recent changes to the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC)

Led by Dr. Hali Kilbourne, an international team of researchers, including Dr. Wanamaker, Dr. Mette, and Dr. Whitney, wrote a comment article in Nature Geoscience on the results described by Caesar et al. (2021; Current Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation weakest in last millennium). Our article along with their response is noted below. Kilbourne et al. … Continue reading Current and former SIPERG members contribute to a discussion on recent changes to the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC)
