Short summary
The pathways of the Atlantic circulation form a complex system of currents that change meridionally due to interactions with nearby water masses. Over the last 30 years, hydrographic data have allowed us to characterize these upper, deep, and abyssal currents for the entire water column using high-resolution data, computing their mass, heat, and freshwater transports. Generally, we have found no changes among decades for each current in terms of the transport of mass or properties.
