Changes in Ocean Circulation: Implications for Europe

This study looks in more detail at the potential implications for Europe of major changes in ocean circulation arising from global warming. This follows on from the initial identification of this issue in the EASAC 2018 extreme weather update, and will focus on the changes to the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and potential impacts via mechanisms such as changes to weather patterns and sealevel rise. The expert group has been established and had its first meeting in May 2019. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 or early 2020.
