Ocean robots record California’s latest hot year

Using underwater gliders, researchers explain what caused the extremely warm ocean along the coast of California in 2014-2015 and what this might mean for local ecosystems. Veronica TamsittI’m a PhD student at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla California. My research is focused on the Southern Ocean circulation and it’s role in climate. For […]

How is the tropical Pacific causing the Arctic to warm?

The Arctic is warming at an unprecedented rate. New research shows that 50% of regional Arctic warming is due to natural climate variations, while the other 50% is due to human-induced climate change. Hillary ScannellHillary received her MS in oceanography from the University of Maine in 2014 and works in the Ecosystem Modeling Lab at […]
