WASHINGTON – One of the most important climate in the world is the North Atlantic area, where hot and cold water blends and grows. When scientists looked at the underwater critical dynamo they found themselves in the wrong place.
Decisions have not yet been understood, but eventually they may change the forecasts of a scenario of widespread warming, which is still unimaginable this century, when confusion stops and climate chaos develops.
Atlantic Meridional is called Overturning Circulation, and scientists describe water from the South of Greenland as a giant stream of African rushes and Indian Oceans.
Cold and salty water is moving northwards and blends in with the cold and cool near Greenland. As this water grows and grows, it promotes a slow-moving ocean of critical earthquakes, increasing the frequency of droughts and hurricanes. It also captures the carbon dioxide heat in the depth of the ocean. The faster it moves, the more cool it becomes cool.
The area in the North Atlantic for warm water is a compact ribbon engine. Scientists thought of the western Labrador Sea in Greenland.
But a new international science team measured the temperature, salinity and speed of the ocean in the North Atlantic. The results obtained after hundreds of months of 21-month results found that the engine was hundreds of miles away, where its author Susan Lozier, a professor of ocean science at Duke University, investigated. The study, published on Thursday in Science magazine, is located in eastern Greenland, closer to Scotland.
Over the next few years the computer simulations for predicting climate change have not been able to find out what the belt engine is like, and now they can be able to. Lozier and several external experts have said they do not change their trust in models, especially when they prove to be true in real world, they are generally accurate.
"It does not mean the patterns are all wrong," said Tom Delworthe, New Jersey Princeton, New Jersey's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration laboratory.
MIT's Carl Wunsch and another outside expert said the study was helpful, but stated that a 21-month study is not enough to find out whether this place is permanent or permanent.
Scientists have long been afraid of slowing down the belt and, in most cases, stopping and ruining and damaging climate change. It was the need for cinematic cinematographic disaster in 2004, which was scientifically unspeakable in the North.
Based on computer-based learning, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change discussed earlier this "century" this circulatory belt would not be very difficult. But the Nobel Prize winner's panel has concluded that it is likely to be a third slowdown, if greenhouse gas emissions continue in the current pace.
An investigation found last year that the global warming system was being weakened, with the transport of the tape moving slowly at nearly 140-year records.
"Our basic understanding is unlikely to stand out," said Delworth, who was not part of the study. "The doubts about our prediction are high."
