    Now what causes our average global temperature of 15 C, is the warmed surface waters. The average surface temperature of ocean is about 17 C. This is an average of tropical ocean surface temperature of about 26 C and the 60% of rest of oceans being about 11 C. The global average land surface air temperature is about 10 C.   So you believe that removing the CO2 from the atmosphere of Venus causes the temperature to drop by more than half (the Venusian surface temperature is degrees C). I’m curious as to how this difference can be so large considering the alleged effect of CO2 for the Earth’s greenhouse effect is so much more modest, especially with higher.

    Any hydrometeor that evaporates before it reaches the surface of the Earth. Virtual Temperature A temperature tht includes the effects of water vapor on density, defined by T v =T*(1+*r), where r is the water-vapor mixing ratio. Visibility The greatest distance an observer can see and identify prominent objects. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).   much as 64% of the committed surface warming and their influence will fade with time compared to the human contribution. Global temperature is subject to short-term fluctuations that overlay long-term trends and can temporarily mask them.

    The temperature of seawater is fixed at the sea surface by heat exchange with the atmosphere. The average incoming energy from the sun at the earth's surface is about four times higher at the equator than at the poles. The average infrared radiation heat loss to space is more constant with latitude. As a result there is a net input of heat to the. This causes a horizontal pressure gradient to form at all depths under the sloped surface, with higher pressure under the high point of the sloping sea surface. Even after the winds stop, water flows horizontally from the high-pressure region toward the low-pressure region until the sea surface is eventually restored to a level configuration.

Search. Much of what is known about the large-scale climatic fluctuations of the Pleistocene Ice Age is based on analysis of _____. Sea floor spreading causes large-scale climate change by _____ All. Sea surface temperature (SST) is the water temperature close to the ocean's surface.

The exact meaning of surface varies according to the measurement method used, but it is between 1 millimetre ( in) and 20 metres (70 ft) below the sea surface.

Air masses in the Earth's atmosphere are highly modified by sea surface temperatures within a short distance of the shore. Global warming is the long-term rise in the average temperature of Short-term fluctuations of sea surface temperature Earth's climate is a major aspect of climate change and has been demonstrated by direct temperature measurements and by measurements of various effects of the warming.

Global warming and climate change are often used interchangeably. But, more accurately, global warming is the mainly human-caused increase in. A review of short-term (fluctuations of several tens of metres indicates recent fundamental progress in understanding the underlying mechanisms.

Although New England Quahogs may tolerate rises in seawater temperatures, they will in fact die out because of the susceptibility of their larvae to slight temperature changes. T Among the three coping strategies for rising sea level - accommodation, protection, and planned retreat, the latter alone addresses the long-term effects of rising seas.

it is apparent that the majority of the increase occurred afterand the change between and was de minimis. Furthermore, the Houghton data these graphs are based upon is highly suspect, i.e.

from IPCC AR4: “Although the two recent satellite-based estimates point to a smaller source than that of Houghton (a), it is premature to say that Houghton’s numbers are.

CLOUD AMOUNT ASPECT OF ENSO RECHARGE PHASE IS DISCUSSED IN PAVLAKUS ET AL () In “ENSO Surface Shortwave Radiation Forcing over the Tropical Pacific” (), Pavlakis et al illustrated inverse relationship between NINO SST anomalies and Downward Shortwave Radiation (visible light) anomaly (DSR-A) at the surface for the Central and Eastern.

ICOADS is the original unadulterated Sea Surface Temperature record. HadSST3, HADISST and ERSST.v3b, all include adjusted/corrected ICOADS data, e.g.: [Note: Bold and non-link underlines below are mine. The sea surface is commonly defined at local–regional scales in relation to a mean sea level (msl) (i.e., the averaged position of all states of sea level over a period of time, generally greater than one year), as a mean tide level, or referenced to a bathymetric, chart datum on marine maps; in the British Isles taken commonly as the lowest point of astronomical tides (e.g., Woodworth,   The Wikipedia defines sea surface temperature here: “Sea surface temperature (SST) is the water temperature close to the oceans surface.

The exact meaning of surface varies according to the measurement method used, but it is between 1 millimetre ( in) and 20 metres (70 ft) below the sea surface.” However, the complexities of defining. El Niño disturbs the atmosphere by moving the west Pacific warm pool (region of sea surface temperature greater than 28C, usually found from Indonesia to the dateline) eastward.

The warm pool is one of the main sources of heat driving the atmosphere, comparable to a continent during summer. The paper is structured as follows. Sea surface tem-perature products are described in section 2.

Section 3 contains a description of the WRF configuration and experiment design. Results are presented in section 4, followed by the summary, conclusions, and suggestions for future work in section 5.

Sea surface temperature products. Tropical sea-surface temperature fluctuations, in contrast with those in the middle latitudes, cause variations in deep atmospheric heating, in turn giving rise to waves that powerfully communicate their influence to the rest of the planet.

Global satellite observations show the sea surface temperature (SST) increasing since the s in all ocean basins, while the net air-sea heat flux, Q, decreases. Over the period the global changes are °C in SST and W/m 2 in Q, giving an effective air-sea coupling coefficient of.

Maark @27, that hypothesis faces several major obstacles. First is the claim that it accounts for plus or minus C in the Earths Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST).

In terms of power, that requires fluctuations of W/m^2, or approximately 9 times the average energy flow from the Earth's interior. Sea surface temperature (SST) has been used for centuries as a way to trace the origin of surface waters and gain greater knowledge of a location—for example, Benjamin Franklin's maps of the Gulf Stream were used to speed mail between England and North America.

High-quality SST fields have been. The oscillation in question influences numerous geophysical and environmental processes, acting both in global and regional scales. Such processes include for instance: fluctuations of climate and weather, sea level change, fluctuations of sea surface temperature, variations in the Earth's rotation rate, and changes in hydrologic regimes.

Our evolving climate: communicating the effects of climate variability. by Ed Hawkins [Published in ‘Weather’ magazine] It is “very likely” that humans have caused most of the warming of the Earth’s climate since the midth century; this was a key conclusion of the 4th Assessment Report (AR4; Solomon et al., ) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The magnitudes of temperature differences between land and sea increased with the magnitudes of volcanic eruptions (i.e., ~ °C after the 25 Tg volcanic eruptions, ~ °C after the 50 Tg volcanic eruptions, and ~ °C after the Tg volcanic eruptions), and reached the largest in the eruption years (Figure 5a–c).

Long‐term changes in subsurface temperature are expected to be largely forced from the ocean surface (~70% of Earth's surface), through air‐sea fluxes. As the ocean surface warms, some of that added heat is transported into deeper layers [e.g., Johnson and Wijffels, ].Whilst there are now some years of reliable data for the Sydney gauge, and these data suggest an overall sea-level rise trend, caution must be exercised if this information is to be applied to coastal process analysis as the short-term fluctuations in the record.

That's why a 5-year running average (red line) sees the trend a bit better, although it's still quite wavy.

A big part of that black zigzagging is due to those El Nino-La Nina fluctuations, which appear on the sea surface temperature index as pinkish upward spikes (El Nino) and purplish downward spikes (La Nina).
