Abstract/Summary

Clement et al. (Reports, 16 October 2015, p. 320) claim that the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) is a thermodynamic response of the ocean mixed layer to stochastic atmospheric forcing, and that ocean circulation changes have no role in causing the AMO. These claims are not justified. We show that ocean dynamics is the leading cause of the AMO.
