If you want to understand the total “climate change” process and its strong effects on lands and sea, you need to go to the depths of the ocean and check how the warm water circulations react to the sudden changes at global temperatures. A group of climate scientists from the UK have been doing this for a few years and the first results of their researches do not give us a bright picture.
Early in 2004, researchers National Oceanography Center at Southampton deployed 19 sets of instruments during a voyage across the Atlantic at 26.5 degrees North, from the north-western coast of Africa to the Bahamas. Scientists at US, installed further moorings on the western side of the ocean. These instruments measure flow, salinity, temperature and water pressure. After leaving the installments one year in the ocean, the scientists collected the data and inspected the variation at warm water movements, particularly of the Gulf Stream.
