The "Global Conveyer Belt" shows how the oceans move energy from the tropics to the poles and back again in order to moderate Earth's climate. This is accomplished through long-term ocean circulation. This on-line tutorial about ocean circulation features text, pictures, and satellite imagery with links to topics such as ocean heat transport, the coriolis effect, hills and valleys in the ocean, measurement ...

This article explains how the TOPEX/Poseidon satellite has been used to track large-scale ocean waves called Rossby waves. This new data indicates that the waves may move faster than previously thought, which may have implications for global weather forecasting. Links to related sites are provided. Full description.
