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.

I think these activities on the Ridge will satisfy your specifications. I searched only for >Mag 4.5. Although such Mags will cause a hurricane, these are too close to the Equator to do so.

Sorry about the formatting but the data I actually posted here were in columns!

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.

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.

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

May 27, 2014 11:22 am

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.

The University of Colorado at Boulder sea level graph,
http://sealevel.colorado.edu/files/2013_rel8/sl_ns_global.png
appears to be superseded with
http://sealevel.colorado.edu/files/2014_rel4/sl_ns_global.png
However, it only goes up to fractional date 2014.1893 so is not very up-to-date itself.

According to Sea Level Rise (NOAA-NESDIS-STAR Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry), at http://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/sod/lsa/SeaLevelRise/ the uncertainty of this measurement is 3–4 mm.

Are there any ideas what the hemispheric emissivity of water is? I am only asking, because if emissivity is to be derived from a fresnel equation with n = 1.27, as indicated here
https://scienceofdoom.com/2010/12/27/emissivity-of-the-ocean/
..then total hemispheric emissivity would equal 0.84, if I did the math correctly.
Next, if absorptivity was about 0.94 (on which there seems to be a consenus), and a PBB temperature was 279.2, then of course water should naturally yield a temperature of (0.94/0.84)^0.25 * 279.2 = 287.2K. A result that jeopardizes the GHE theory.

Read about jet streams being accelerated by mid-latitude oxygen/ozone conversion which extends Rossby wave meander loops. Study the new theory on your desktop at this dedicated website:

Ocean suffers from offshore wind farms pollution. I mean, that when inspection fails and pieces (or in some cases the whole wind blade) falls into the ocean and harm it dramatically. For that reason, technicians must pay attention to maintenance and inspections in order to take care of environment

How relevant is submarine magma production in the debate over rising oceans?

  If the global production of magma is: 20–25 cubic kilometers per year
·        And 70% of magma is produce globally is the result of submarine volcanos
·        Then 17.2 cubic Kilometers of magma is adding volume to the oceans annually.
·        And a one inch rise in sea level requires 9195 Cubic Kilometers of volume
o  The area of the world ocean is about 362 million square kilometers.
o   One inch is 2.54 cm, which works out to 2.54 x 10^-5 km.
o   (390 x 10^6 km^2) x (2.54 x 10^-5 km) = 9195 km^3 = 9195 cubic kilometers.

·Based on annual magma production alone, sea surfaces should rise almost 2 inches a year.
I understand this is a simplistic observation as there are many other variables and complications that contribute to sea level variation.

Other Factors?
o   Water Temperature,
o   Gravitational variation (earth and cosmic)
o   Eruptions and earthquakes opening new volumes in the sea floor, (fissures, fractures etc)
o   Ice freeze and melt
o   Precipitation cycles
o   Volume of animal and plant life in the ocean
