Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC)

Marine robots could help improve forecasts of European weather in the future

On Saturday 20th October the Royal Research Ship (RRS) James Cook departed on an expedition during which a new automated system of collecting climate data will be trialed. If successful, the new technology could help improve long-range European weather forecasts in the future.

Impacts of marine climate change demonstrated by decade of scientific collaboration

NOC scientists have contributed to a major new publication by the UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP), which demonstrates the effects climate change is having on UK seas and coastlines.

Is AMOC amok?

Depoying a RAPID mooring

A decade of research on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), which is important for understanding the climate, reveals some surprising findings about its behaviour.

Ten years of ocean monitoring uncovers secrets of changing UK winters

Deploying a RAPID buoy

A ground-breaking project to observe and analyse regular data about ocean circulation and how it impacts on Britain’s climate has reached a ten-year milestone, giving valuable new insights into how ocean currents can affect global warming.
