10 years of observations of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation: results from RAPID, surprises and future plans

Deploying RAPID buoys

18-19 September 2014, Church House, Westminster, London. In 2014 RAPID reached 10 years of continuous observations of overturning circulation in the Atlantic Ocean.

The joint UK-US RAPID programme has been making observation of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) since April 2004. To mark this milestone, a day-and-a-half event is being held.
