Winds Hide Atlantic Variability from Europe’s Winters

Shifting winds may explain why long-term fluctuations in North Atlantic sea surface temperatures have no apparent influence on Europe’s wintertime temperatures. The findings, published in Nature Communications, could also have implications for how Europe’s climate will evolve amid global warming. In the mid-1990s, scientists assembled the first century-long record of North Atlantic sea surface temperatures […]

2015 temperatures in Narragansett Bay reflect climate change trends

If you have any doubt that climate change is affecting our planet, consider the research of Jeremy Collie, an oceanographer at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. Collie says that temperatures in Narragansett Bay hit record highs and lows in 2015, which he calls the “most extreme’’ fluctuations observed since GSO started […]
