Arctic Ocean Circulation
The complex ocean circulation system in the Arctic—which impacts the entire food web—is in a delicate balance.
Currents, Gyres, & Eddies
At the surface and beneath, currents, gyres and eddies physically shape the coasts and ocean bottom.
El Niño & Other Oscillations
El Niño is a warming of surface waters in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean, while La Niña is a cooling event.
The Ocean Conveyor
Today’s climate system is influenced by the ocean’s conveyor-like global circulation.
