Description:

The Global Conveyer Belt shows how the oceans move energy from the tropics to the poles and back again in order to moderate Earths 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 and motion in the wind and ocean, changes in sea height over time, and El Nino.
