Abstract

The current paradigm of modern climatology and oceanography is that the thermohaline ocean circulation comprises a so-called global ocean "salinity conveyor belt" - a system of currents connecting the northern North Atlantic and northern North Pacific. A hypothesis is put forth here that a slight disparity in freshwater redistribution between the oceans in the Northern Hemisphere is sufficient to build up and maintain a global conveyor type ocean thermohaline circulation.
