Latest Sea surface temperature Stories
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.
ESA’s Earth Explorers have again shown how they are surpassing expectations. Designed to map soil moisture and ocean salinity, the versatile SMOS satellite has demonstrated that it can also offer unique information to improve hurricane forecasts.
Radiometrics Corporation announces successful deployments of the MP-3000A radiometer system for improved prediction of short-term weather impacting wind power generation and utility load forecasting.
The breakthrough moment for oceanographer Gary Lagerloef, the principal investigator for NASA's new Aquarius mission, came in 1991.
El Nino and its partner La Nina, the warm and cold phases in the eastern half of the tropical Pacific, play havoc with climate worldwide.
BALTIMORE, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SST Online, LLC (SSTOL) has been providing offshore sea surface temperature, turbidity and altimetry data to recreational and commercial fisherman and other outdoor enthusiasts for over 15 years via its website at http://www.sstol.com.
New NASA satellite data indicate the current La NiÃ±a event in the eastern Pacific has remained strong during November and December 2010.
A relatively new type of El NiÃ±o, which has its warmest waters in the central-equatorial Pacific Ocean, rather than in the eastern-equatorial Pacific, is becoming more common and progressively stronger, according to a new study by NASA and NOAA.
The ongoing El NiÃ±o of 2010 is affecting north Pacific Ocean ecosystems in ways that could affect the West Coast fishing industry.
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...
