How does the ocean affect weather patters?

    The ocean affects weather patterns because of the shifts in ocean patterns. In the 1980s evidence showed that the North Atlantic circulation could switch radically within a century or two. Global warming was feared to be a trigger of the switch.  Oceans were rapidly warming and growing more acidic. Scientist also began to note how winds that passed over oceans brought moisture and warmth to neighboring lands. Also warm tropical seas evaporate moisture and it would eventually come down as rain and snow farther north. Hence there is a strong correlation between the ocean and climate.
