Marine Animals Follow Cooler Waters To Escape Climate Change
2013-09-13 11:21:50

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Like humans headed for air-conditioning during the hot summer months, mobile marine life will often move en masse to avoid rising temperatures. With climate change expected to drive ocean temperatures up a few degrees, a team of American and Canadian scientists decided to investigate how shifting temperatures might affect the large scale movements of marine life, in a new report published Friday in the journal Science. According to...

How Cold, Deep Ocean Waters Influence Sea Surface Temperatures
2013-07-26 06:04:28

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Newly published research from Oregon State University has revealed new details on the forces behind El Nino and could lead to more refined predictions for global warming. According to their report in the journal Nature, OSU scientists have used new measurements of ocean mixing to record the first multi-year data set that will allow for a comprehensive analysis of how cold, deep ocean waters can influence sea surface temperatures on a...

El Nino Has A New Rhythm
2013-05-27 04:59:39

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Climate experts from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Meteorology Department and International Pacific Research Center have reportedly discovered why the weather phenomenon known as El Nino typically peaks around Christmas and ends sometime between the months of February and April. As it turns out according to researchers, "An unusual wind pattern that straddles the equatorial Pacific during strong El Nino events and swings back...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to the most recent Ecosystem Advisory issued by NOAA's Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC), sea surface temperatures (SSTs) for 2012 in the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem were the highest recorded in 150 years. These record SSTs are the latest in a trend of above average temperatures observed during the spring and summer seasons and part of a pattern of elevated temperatures in the Northwest Atlantic. This trend...

Strong Correlation Between Asian Summer Monsoon And The Climate Pattern That Preceded It
2013-04-24 10:13:28

University of California, San Diego For much of Asia, the pace of life is tuned to rhythms of monsoons. The summer rainy season is especially important for securing the water and food supplies for more than a billion people. Its variations can mean the difference between drought and flood. Now a Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego-led study reports on a crucial connection that could drastically improve the ability of forecasters to reliably predict the monsoon a few months...

Cyclone Gino Winds Up To Wind Down Later Seen By Nasa
2013-02-13 10:13:02

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Cyclone Gino as the storm continues to wind up in the southern Indian Ocean, consolidating and strengthening. Infrared data shows the storm has strengthened but it is headed for cooler waters which will weaken it in coming days. On Feb. 12 at 0841 UTC, NASA Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies aboard the Aqua satellite captured infrared imagery of Cyclone Gino that showed the storm developed a large area of very cold, high...

Study Highlights Complex Interplay Between Global Warming And Rainfall
2013-01-31 09:51:24

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international group of scientists has shown that global warming from greenhouse gases affects global rainfall patterns differently than global warming from solar heating. Using computer model simulations, the research team showed that global rainfall has increased less over the present-day warming period than during the Medieval Warm Period between 950 and 1250 AD despite the fact that temperatures today are higher than...

Tropical Indo-Pacific Climate Changes To A More El Niño-like State
2012-11-15 11:57:55

University of Hawaii “‘ SOEST The Walker circulation determines much of the tropical Indo-Pacific climate and has a global impact as seen in the floods and droughts spawned by the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. Meteorological observations over the last 60 years show this atmospheric circulation has slowed: the trade winds have weakened and rainfall has shifted eastward toward the central Pacific. The immediate cause of this slowdown has puzzled climate...

Gulf Stream Shift Has Warmed New England Waters
2012-10-13 10:00:29

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The ocean waters around the New England continental shelf were warmer than usual thanks to a divergence in the Gulf Stream path that started about one year ago, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) announced on Thursday. The study, which was published in the August edition of the journal Scientific Reports, began after local commercial fisherman met with WHOI members and alerted them to unusually high...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online There are satellites for nearly everything out in orbit now-a-days, including some that are meant just to provide measurements of the surface temperature of oceans and seas. These thermometers in the sky led to the meeting of scientists to review data from new satellite missions and scientific progress in the field. The European Space Agency said that measuring the sea-surface temperature (SST) across regional and global scales is...

Ocean Analysis for November 17, 2012
2012-11-17 08:24:58

Point #1: Warm finger- This region inside the area marked number 1, represents a warm finger of the ocean temperatures. What is occurring is that the warmer air is being pushed faster in this region than the surrounding locations giving us this little finger of warmer temps in that region. Point #2: Warm Eddie- This is a region of warmer temps surrounded on all sides by colder water. Eddies are a closed circulation of water in the ocean that has in this case warmer temps around it. These...
