  • New Discoveries Improve Climate Models

    New discoveries on how underwater ridges impact the ocean's circulation system will help improve climate projections. An underwater ridge can trap the flow of cold, dense water at the bottom of the ocean. Without the ridge, deepwater can flow freely and speed up the ocean circulation pattern, which generally increases the flow of warm surface water. Warm water on the ocean's surface makes the ...

Those that live in more urban areas, such as cities, typically don’t consider flooding as a problem. Yet one type of flooding can actually affect those in more built-up areas far worse – surface ...
