Abstract/Summary

The fourth workshop of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (SAMOC 4) took place in Simons Town, South Africa, on 27-29 September 2011. The main objectives of the workshop were to: highlight recent modeling results related to the importance of observing the South Atlantic components of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC); provide an overview of results from ongoing pilot arrays and related observational programs; discuss the status of proposals submitted for observations and modeling; and coordinate new proposals aimed at SAMOC goals. Discussions on ship time availability to support the proposed fieldwork in the region, and on developing new agreements for sharing these resources, also took place.
