Stable ocean circulation in changing north Atlantic Ocean
https://phys.org/news/2020-11-stable-ocean-circulation-north...
The researchers found that despite profound decadal ocean interior property changes, the overturning circulation remains stable on decadal timescales since the 1990s....

"Under global warming, there have been rising concerns that the AMOC is slowing down or will do so in the future," said Dr. Wang Chunzai, corresponding author of the study. Hollywood science fiction movie The Day After Tomorrow even depicts catastrophic climate effects following a shutdown of the AMOC which leads to a new ice age....

"However, in spite of these profound hydrographic and tracer concentration changes, the AMOC states in both the subpolar and subtropical North Atlantic between the 1990s and 2010s are indistinguishably different from each other," said Dr. Fu.
