Oceanic teleconnection for carbon dioxide


Biogeochemical teleconnection links seemingly unrelated chemical/biological anomalies that are geographically separated by large distances. Bronselaer et al. propose a new mechanism for an interhemispheric teleconnection of air-sea carbon dioxide fluxes in which the upwelling of the Southern Ocean triggers a series of perturbations leading to the alteration of the carbon uptake in the North Atlantic.
