Title: Great Ocean Conveyor Belt: Part II
Url: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.watcyc.convey2...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: A network of currents called the Great Ocean Conveyor constantly circulates the water in Earth's oceans and redistributes heat from the tropics toward the poles, keeping some regions far more habitable than they would be otherwise. In this audio segment, scientists discuss the hypothesis that global warming is introducing fresh water into the world's oceans, disrupting the Great Ocean Conveyor. These changes could possibly cause it to stop circulating, resulting in abrupt changes in climate. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
