    The article focuses on the link between global warming and hurricanes. Rising global temperatures have increased ocean temperatures, and warmer water contributes to the intensity of hurricanes, as of December 2005. Research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology shows that the duration...

    We investigate the large-scale oceanic features determining the future ice shelf-ocean interaction by analyzing global warming experiments in a coarse resolution climate model with a comprehensive ocean component. Heat and freshwater fluxes from basal ice shelf melting (ISM) are parameterized...

    The article discusses a study by N. Harada and colleagues on sea surface temperature changes in the Okhotsk Sea and adjacent North Pacific. They show that analysis of a compilation of alkenone-derived sea surface temperatures shows a coherent mode of millennial-scale variability which is closely...

  • Deep-ocean contribution to sea level and energy budget not detectable over the past decade. Llovel, W.; Willis, J. K.; Landerer, F. W.; Fukumori, I. // Nature Climate Change;Nov2014, Vol. 4 Issue 11, p1031 

    As the dominant reservoir of heat uptake in the climate system, the world's oceans provide a critical measure of global climate change. Here, we infer deep-ocean warming in the context of global sea-level rise and Earth's energy budget between January 2005 and December 2013. Direct measurements...

  • How does ocean ventilation change under global warming? Gnanadesikan, A.; Russell, J. L.; Zeng, F. // Ocean Science Discussions;2006, Vol. 3 Issue 4, p805 

    Since the upper ocean takes up much of the heat added to the earth system by anthropogenic global warming, one would expect that global warming would lead to an increase in stratification and a decrease in the ventilation of the ocean interior. However, multiple simulations in global coupled...

  • The role of forcing and internal dynamics in explaining the 'Medieval Climate Anomaly'. Goosse, Hugues; Crespin, Elisabeth; Dubinkina, Svetlana; Loutre, Marie-France; Mann, Michael; Renssen, Hans; Sallaz-Damaz, Yoann; Shindell, Drew // Climate Dynamics;Dec2012, Vol. 39 Issue 12, p2847 

    Proxy reconstructions suggest that peak global temperature during the past warm interval known as the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA, roughly 950-1250 AD) has been exceeded only during the most recent decades. To better understand the origin of this warm period, we use model simulations...
