Description

The world’s oceans and atmosphere work as a system, exchanging heat, moisture and gases. Changes in the temperature of sea surface affect atmospheric dynamics, which in turn influence the weather and climate. This is not a one-way process, however, because the atmosphere also affects the oceans and helps to drive ocean circulation, which plays an important role in moderating our climate.
