Wind conditions influence water circulation and CO2 concentrations in the Southern Ocean

The study used measurements on fossil coral skeletons to reveal that significant changes in deep-water circulation occurred in the #DrakePassage around 6-7000 years ago. They see indications that it also influenced #CO2 levels in the atmosphere - & suggest that future #ClimateChange could lead to increased release of CO2 from the deep waters of the #Southern #Ocean.
