Atlantic meridional overturning circulation slowed

………………………………….

Here we analyse a new 25 degreeN transatlantic section and compare it with four previous sections taken over the past five decades. The comparison suggests that the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) has slowed by about 30 oercent between 1957 and 2004.
