How Earth’s oceans and atmosphere impact each other


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at how the Earth’s oceans and atmosphere are interlocked, exchanging heat, moisture, and energy.

When the temperature of the ocean changes, it alters the circulation of the atmosphere and impacts climate and weather patterns.

Meanwhile, the atmosphere also impacts oceans and drives circulation, which in turn affects the climate.
