Short summary
Changes in mass transport of the Florida Current induce significant coastal sea level changes along the Florida Straits and middle Atlantic coast of North America. Analysis of Florida Current transport data finds a decrease in mean transport over the last decade. This decrease coincides with a decrease in AMOC and acceleration of coastal sea levels along the Florida Straits.
