Following the IPCC-A2 scenario, the climate over the Mediterranean basin might become warmer and drier during the 21st century. These two effects may have an opposite impact on the Mediterranean Sea winter deep convection because surface water may become warmer and saltier. In this study, we try to assess the question of the possible evolution of the Mediterranean sea thermohaline circulation.
