About This Lesson

How are ocean currents affected by climate change, and what are the climatic and ecological consequences?  This course provides understanding of ocean circulation relative to the carbon cycle, focusing on the impacts to two major currents: the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and the Gulf Stream. The video+ online course from the Center for Behavior and Climate teaches the main concepts in the second half of the Just Have a Think Video #48: Arctic Disintegration. One class period long. Students can work on the questions in small groups or individually.
