Changing winds drive more ocean heat capture

A team of scientists look to the Southern Ocean to show where and why the ocean has been storing extra heat. 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 my research I sometimes spend […]

The Atlantic Ocean is the Culprit in the Case of the Cooling Eastern Pacific

A classic climate “Whodunit”? Can researchers get to the bottom of the mystery of the cooling eastern Pacific Ocean, three decades in the making? Brian CaccioppoliI am a recent graduate (Dec. 2015) from the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, with a M.S. in Oceanography. My research interests include the use of geophysical […]

Can the ocean take the heat?

Things heat up as scientists investigate deeper to find out how much heat the ocean can take. 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 my research I sometimes spend months at sea on […]

Indian Ocean keeps the Pacific cool

Inter-ocean heat transport through Indonesia’s archipelago offloads excess heat from the tropical Pacific to the Indian Ocean. Findings emphasize the importance of ocean heat transport in solving Earth’s energy imbalance.

Global temperatures: an uphill battle of warm vs. cold

An illusional and fanciful pause in global warming has climate change skeptic buzzing. Understanding the decadal oscillations of natural climate variability places transient pauses in global warming in perspective. Spoiler: we’re still trending towards a warmer climate. Hillary ScannellHillary received her MS in oceanography from the University of Maine in 2014 and works in the […]

Slightly Refreshing News In A Time of Drought

Two hot items in climate science today are the North American drought and the decade-long warming hiatus. This study finds a relationship between these two headliners and seeks to answer the question: Are humans responsible for the drought? Brian CaccioppoliI am a recent graduate (Dec. 2015) from the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of […]

Global Warming Hiatus? Blame the Atlantic!

From the early 1990s on, the Earth has been experiencing a global warming hiatus, where the post-industrial warming trend has effectively come to a stop. Recent research has implicated strengthening Pacific trade winds as the cause of the warming hiatus. New evidence suggests the mechanism triggering the unprecedented acceleration of Pacific trade winds has its […]

A Cool Breeze Amidst Global Warming

Climate scientists have affirmed that we are currently in a warming hiatus, similar to the 1940s – 1970s, where global warming has stalled or is occurring at an unusually slow rate. The cause of these warming hiatuses are under investigation, though it is well understood that they are temporary deviations from the normal warming trend. […]
