  • Citing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the judge said that it was "very unlikely" that the Ocean Conveyor, also known as the Meridional Overturning Circulation, would shut down in the future, though it might slow down.

  • For example, if you check out the section on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation in Chapter 10, all models show some weakening of the MOC and, the few that show a shut-down show that it takes a few centuries.

  • The new big thing in Atlantic hurricanes is their connection with something called the Atlantic Meridional Mode Vimont and Kossin 2007; Kossin and Vimont 2007.

  • …Unlike the AMO, the AMM emerges as a true dynamical mode of variability intrinsic to the tropical coupled ocean-atmosphere system [Chiang et al., 1997; Xie, 1999], Pronounced coupled ocean-atmosphere variability in the Tropical Atlantic is generated by fluctuations in the Atlantic Meridional Mode AMM [Servain et al., 1999; Xie and Carton, 2004; Chiang and Vimont, 2004].

  • Jim Kossin and Dan Vimont at U Wisconsin have expounded upon the Atlantic Meridional Mode or AMM, which is an elegant dynamical mode of the tropical Atlantic.

  • …Vimont and Kossin [2007; hereafter VK07] showed that the relationship between SST and hurricane activity could be viewed as part of a larger relationship between hurricane activity and a dynamical mode of Atlantic variability referred to here as the Atlantic Meridional Mode AMM, but also known historically as the “gradient”, “interhemispheric”, or “Atlantic Dipole” mode [see the review by Xie and Carton, 2004].

  • According to this system, all observable variation in atmospheric circulation is classified into three basic types by direction of the air mass transfer: Meridional (C); Western (W), and Eastern (E).
