Study reveals ocean circulation on distant Earth-like planets

"The number of planets being discovered outside our solar system is rapidly increasing. Our research helps to answer whether or not these planets could sustain alien life," said David Stevens from Britain's University of East Anglia (UEA).

It isn't just the atmosphere, but the circulation of the oceans plays an equally important role in regulating the Earth's climate, new research shows.

`Ozone thinning has changed ocean circulation`

A hole in the Antarctic ozone layer has changed the way waters in the southern oceans mix, which scientists say could impact global climate change.

Stratosphere winds affect ocean circulation, climate

Winds 15-30 miles high up in the stratosphere change mile-deep ocean circulation patterns, affecting earth`s climate in turn, says a new study.
