  1. I know everybody is focusing on the Pacific at the moment, but is there any details on the event in the central atlantic around the 10th may there seemed to be a large disturbance in the SST lasting around 2 weeks.

    Good catch, not sure what to make of that:

    And the disturbance wasn’t just temperature, it was also Sea Surface Height;

    Speed / Currents

    and Sea Surface Salinity, where there is also an interesting coincident decrease in salinity off the coast of Africa:

    No sure what that is. There was a “Moderate earthquake – Southern Mid Atlantic Ridge on May 10, 2014″, but I don’t know if this would be strong enough to create such a disturbance. I’ll put it in an article to see if anyone else knows what it was.

  3. Thanks, I was thinking perhaps a large underwater eruption may have disturbed the water column causing an upwelling of both warm and cold water but i couldn’t find any corresponding seismic activity. I believe the earthquake you noted was much further south along the ridge, which made me sceptical that it could have triggered the event near the equator.

  4. Good catch, Tim. Volcanic activity along submarine ridges is barely noticed, unless it coincides with earthquake activity serious enough to warrant a tsunami watch. Not all volcanic activity is explosive or even abrupt, as can be seen at Kilauea. A gradual oozing of lava will dump a lot of heat into a limited area of the ocean. A similar situation occurred when the Gakken Ridge exuded a huge lava flow into the Arctic floor – at a time roughly coincident with the onset of the anxiety about reduction in the annual minimum of the Arctic ice cover.

  5. Looks like the middle of the South Atlantic Gyre. Could it have swept in something that jacked measurements?

  6. That anomaly on the 10th May appears to be in the region of Ascension Island, which is a dormant volcano. I’d suggest there may have been a major eruption in an underwater vent in the area. I believe there is a lot of volcanic activity there.
