Influence of the Atlantic Subpolar Gyre on the Thermohaline Circulation.

In the Science issue of the 16th of September large and unexpected changes in the climate of the North Atlantic ocean are reported by a team of climate scientists from the Faroe Islands, Norway and Iceland. They show that the oceanic waters off Northern Europe are exhibiting record-high temperatures and salinities, and that these extremes relate to changes in the circulation of the North Atlantic circulation since the mid-90s.
