Successful bids to the 'Monitoring the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation' (MOC) funding round

Four research proposals are being funded through the RAPID 'MOC Monitoring' funding round (Click on a Project Title to view an abstract).

These studies are being complemented by three projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the USA to observe relevant aspects of the N. Atlantic circulation. Details of the NERC/NSF links for the MOC monitoring can be found by clicking here
