A shutdown or slowdown of the thermohaline circulation is an effect of global warming on a major ocean circulation. Data from NASA in 2010 suggested that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) has not slowed down, but may have actually sped up slightly since 1993. A 2015 study suggested that the AMOC has weakened by 15-20\% in 200 years.
