The Gulf Stream and The Next Ice Age
The Great Ocean Conveyor is also referred to as the thermohaline circulation. It’s the manner in which circulation in the ocean is created by heat and fluxes. Its condition greatly impacts the climate of the whole world.
With the occurence of the phenomenon called global warming, scientists now say that the changes in the condition of The Great Ocean Conveyor are alarming. They are keeping watch over this, and studying every bit of abnormal events, for fear that this could trigger what could become the next Ice Age.
The conveyor is situated in the Gulf of Mexico, where the water moves towards the Florida Strait before heading to the North Atlantic. This warm waters cool when they hit the Arctic Ocean before they loop, thus termed “thermohaline circulation”, and then set out to flow back to the Gulf Stream again. Scientists believe that this circultion has collapsed and predicted that Europe will experience a drastic change in its climate, and if it will get worse, it will affect the rest of the world.
Our changing climate is a result of so many factors that include natural and man-made sources. Is it too late to do anything to prevent this?
This documentary is an exposition on the subject matter and is directed by Nicolas Koutsikas.Published on January 8, 2010 · Filed under: Biology, Environment
