Dr. Bower explains the structure and dynamics of deep ocean currents and the vital role of these currents in maintaining the Earth’s climate. She discusses the concern among climate and ocean scientists about one of the major systems, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and the implications of a slowdown in that system. Dr. Bower also describes the technical challenges of measuring systems like the AMOC.

In October 2011, the Center for Vision Loss, an agency serving visually impaired people of eastern Pennsylvania, awarded their first-ever "Chrysalis Award" to WHOI scientist Amy Bower. The award, which honors "a blind or visually impaired person who has transformed the world around them," and was given to Amy to recognize her achievements in oceanography and outreach.
