Animation: Ocean Circulation Conveyor Belt Helps Balance Climate
Science, Moving Image

As part of the ocean conveyor belt, warm water from the tropical Atlantic moves poleward near the surface where it gives up some of its heat to the atmosphere. This process partially moderates the cold temperatures at higher latitudes. As the warm water gives up its heat, it becomes more dense and sinks.

Our bodies are constantly monitoring, balancing and adapting to the outside environment through a process called “homeostasis.” We journey to the limits of human endurance as New England scientists and survivors examine how the body attempts to maintain its steady state at high mountain altitudes, in extreme cold and heat and even in outer space.
