NBC News: Climate change models predicted ocean currents would speed up — but not this soon

Ocean currents are the undersea conveyor belts that help regulate Earth’s climate and influence weather systems around the world.

Ocean currents — undersea conveyor belts that help regulate Earth’s climate and influence weather systems around the world — have been speeding up over the past two decades as the planet warms, according to new research.

The puzzling discovery, detailed in a study published last week in the journal Science Advances, highlights that climate change could have wide-ranging effects that are unexpected or severely understudied.
