ARGO—Fit for Purpose?

By Rud Istvan This is the second of two guest posts on whether ‘big’ climate science missions are fit for purpose, inspired by ctm as seaside lunch speculations. The first…

A Small Margin Of Error

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I see that Zeke Hausfather and others are claiming that 2018 is the warmest year on record for the ocean down to a depth of…

Learning From The Argonauts

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach The best thing about doing climate science the way I do it is that I can study anything I want, and there is always so…

Argo, Temperature, and OHC

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been thinking about the Argo floats and the data they’ve collected. There are about 4,000 Argo floats in the ocean. Most of the time…

NODC Provides 1st Quarter 2013 Ocean Heat Content Update & Alarmist Writes Science Fiction

This morning I found two emails in my inbox about an alarmist blog post that claims Big Jump in Ocean Warming, in response to the NODC’s recent quarterly update of…

More on Trenberth’s Missing Heat

In the post Trenberth Still Searching for Missing Heat, we discussed the recent Balmaseda et al (2013) paper “Distinctive climate signals in reanalysis of global ocean heat content”, of which…

Dana Nuccitelli's Skeptical Science OHC grapple – down for the count

Dana1981 at SkepticalScience Tries to Mislead His Readers Guest post by Bob Tisdale Dana1981 (aka Dana Nuccitelli) recently authored a SkepticalScience post titled Modeled and Observed Ocean Heat Content – Is…

An Ocean of Overconfidence

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I previously discussed the question of error bars in oceanic heat content measurements in “Decimals of Precision“. There’s a new study of changes in oceanic…

300 soundings from 19th century compared to Argo data

From the University of California – San Diego Scripps Institute, you gotta love the subheading in this PR. I didn’t know robots could travel back in time. Gosh, I learn something new…

Argo, Latitude, Day, and Reynolds Interpolation

Guest post by Willis Eschenbach This is another of my occasional reports from my peripatetic travels through the Argo data (see the Appendix for my other dispatches from the front…

Argo Notes the Third

I got into this investigation of Argo because I disbelieved their claimed error of 0.002°C for the annual average temperature of the top mile of the ocean. I discussed this…

Do underwater volcanoes have an effect on ENSO?

I found this post interesting, especially after looking at some of the images that show what appears to be a tight hot spot upwelling off the coast of Costa Rica.…

Argo and the Ocean Temperature Maximum

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach It has been known for some time that the “Pacific Warm Pool”, the area just northeast of Australia, has a maximum temperature. It never gets…

Argo Notes Part 2

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Following on my previous post, “Jason and the Argo Notes”, just a couple of graphs in passing: Figure 1. Argo surface temperatures, northern hemisphere. Colors…

Jason and the Argo Notes

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Like Jason, I proceed into the unknown with my look at the Argo data, and will post random notes as I voyage. Come, my friends,…

Where in the World is Argo?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach The Argo floats are technical marvels. They float around below the surface of the ocean, about a kilometre down, for nine days. On the tenth…

More Evidence that Global Warming is a False Alarm

Roy Spencer writes on his website: NASA’s James Hansen is probably right about this point: the importance of ocean heat storage to a better understanding of how sensitive the climate…

ARGO-Era NODC Ocean Heat Content Data (0-700 Meters) Through December 2010

Guest post by Bob Tisdale: NOTE: This post contains 5 .gif animations that total 10MB. (below the continue reading line) Have patience. They may take a while to load. This…
