Julius Busecke, currently a PhD student at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, helps viewers understand the connections between ocean temperature and salinity. If one of these is changed, the overall density of seawater is changed and this can have an impact on ocean circulation. We also learn how North Atlantic Deep Water is formed and how that drive global ocean circulation. This video is a small part of a larger webinar entitled “Changes in Latitude” (cosee.umaine.edu/coseeos/spurs/webinars_04.htm).
