Ocean flow models wrong: climate change models further flawed

May 16th, 2009 at 05:21pm

Looks like those ocean flow models which contribute to those (already wrong) climate change models are wrong:

A 50 year old model of global thermohaline circulation that predicts a deep Atlantic counter current below the Gulf Stream is now formally called into question by an armada of subsurface RAFOS floats drifting 700 – 1500m deep. Nearly 80% of the RAFOS floats escaped the Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC), drifting into the open ocean.

This confirms suspicions that have been around since the 1990’s, and likely plays havoc with global models of climate change.
[..]
the research represents a major paradigm shift in ocean circulation theory.

No real surprises here…just more proof that flawed theories form large parts of flawed theories.
