New paper: Barents Sea Temperature correlated to the AMO as much as 4C – potential for sea ice effect

A new paper just published in the Geophysical Review Letters finds a significant correlation between the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) and the water temperature of the Barents Sea. This was made possible by a significant network of hydrographical stations in the Barents Sea which resulted in a 230,000 temperature profiles used in this analysis. The…

Operation ice bridge in Antarctica

While we have no mention in press of the record amounts of ice for the entire Antarctic continent as shown here, scientists are focusing on the one part of the continent that seems to get all the press. No word yet on whether Ted Scambos has a statement prepared already for the press. From a…

Antarctica’s ice story has been put on ice

From World Climate Report: Antarctic Ice Melt at Lowest Levels in Satellite Era Where are the headlines? Where are the press releases? Where is all the attention? The ice melt across during the Antarctic summer (October-January) of 2008-2009 was the lowest ever recorded in the satellite history. Such was the finding reported last week by…
