It’s well known that hurricanes can substantially impact ocean surface temperature, but a new study shows they can also induce an ocean salinity response in unexpected ways.
The Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission will begin by scanning Earth’s surface once a day. We invite ocean scientists to contribute ground-based measurements to compare with the satellite data.
A new technique based on GPS signals could provide better wind speed measurements during hurricanes and cyclones.
The first observational evidence of dipole eddy pairs (modons) in the southern midlatitude ocean reveals that they move faster, live longer, and travel greater distances compared to single eddies.
European scientists use satellite sensors to detect light reflected off waves at the ocean's surface, which could help improve wave forecasts.
