Advanced real-time data buoys have observed nine strong typhoons in the northwestern Pacific Ocean since 2015, providing high-resolution data and reducing the uncertainty of numerical model forecasts.
A lower-resolution model is sufficient to capture air-sea interactions, but a high-resolution model better simulates average sea surface temperatures in the North Atlantic.
Researchers uncover new insights into the life cycle of water in the Antarctic region by measuring noble gas concentrations.
Modern oceanographers and ancient navigators rely on similar waves to study the world's oceans.
Air-Sea Fluxes for the Southern Ocean: Strategies and Requirements for Detecting Physical and Biogeochemical Exchanges; Frascati, Italy, 21–23 September 2015
New evidence strengthens a likely link between 20- to 40-year sea surface temperature fluctuations and varying ocean circulation patterns.
Results from the first decade-long reanalysis simulation of northwest European shelf biogeochemistry show the importance of quantifying the uncertainty in these indicators to inform marine policy.
Vortices formed off the west coast of Sardinia could play a large role in Mediterranean water circulation and mixing and are significant for marine ecosystems and regional climate.
A study of water temperature in nearshore environments shows that wave energy was the second-largest driver of temperature changes in the surf zone.
Pacific Ocean conditions brought El Niño winter forecasts in early 2014, but the chances faded by late summer. New research places blame on shifting winds.
