It is known that the Atlantic Overturning Circulation (AMOC) transports warm water from the Southern Hemisphere north, where it generates heat and freezes. The freezing process leads to a concentration of salt in the non-frozen part of the ocean water, then this highly salty water sinks and returns to the south. Which leads to restarting the conveyor belt (for heat). This heat emission helps make the climate in Europe and North America more moderate. But records over the past 100,000 years indicate that sometimes, the AMOC cycle stops suddenly, leading to major climate changes that last for several decades. In a study In a new study, published February 9 in the journal Science Advances, scientists have found that the influx of fresh water into the Atlantic Ocean at 34 degrees south latitude (the latitude where South Africa is located) may be a major warning sign of an AMOC collapse. But scientists do not have enough information about the flow of fresh water in this part of the Earth to predict how far the AMOC cycle is from the turning point at the present time, but they are certain that this flow is declining. Van Westen adds that it is difficult to predict the results, as Finding the turning point in the AMOC cycle requires simulating a gradual increase in freshwater flow into the North Atlantic Ocean over more than 2,000 years. It is a long and expensive process, and trying to shortcut it by simulating large freshwater pulses is not realistic or accurate. According to Westin, Impacts vary by region, but Europe will be hit hard, with temperatures changing between 9 and 18 degrees Fahrenheit (5 to 10 degrees Celsius) within a century. That's a big shift, even compared to the current level of climate change, which is already having major impacts. The color of your eyes affects your ability to read..
