Available data for ocean temperature, salinity, and current at the present time do not have sufficient resolution to describe the variability in Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). To fill the gap, we are working on near real-time 3D synoptic temperature, salinity, and velocity (STSV) datasets from remotely sensed Argo profiling and trajectory data together with the Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP), Navy’s MOODS, and the OSCAR data using the optimal spectral decomposition (OSD) method. With establishment of the STSV dataset, the AMOC variability can be effectively detected and predicted.

Challenor, P.G.; Tokmakian, R.T. (1999);From in situ measurements it has been inferred that the variability of flow through the Drake Passage down to 250&n does not depend upon depth (barotropic flow). By making this assumption it is possible to calculate the ...

The variability of travel times comes from several ocean dynamical processes, including eddies, internal tides, and stochastic ...
