Caption: Thomas Reichler, a University of Utah atmospheric scientist, led a new study showing that changes in winds 15- to 30-miles high in the stratosphere can influence seawater circulation a mile or more deep in the ocean. He says this effect should be taken into account in forecasting climate change distinct from global warming.
