The first AtlantOS newsletter has been released recently to introduce the vision of AtlantOS to the wider community interested in the Atlantic Ocean and the societal benefit that is enabled by sustained ocean observation.

Atlantic Ocean observation is currently undertaken through loosely-coordinated in-situ observing networks and global satellite observations. To tackle the challenge of...

Sea surface temperatures that are too warm in the eastern tropical Atlantic and Pacific oceans have long stymied coupled climate model depictions of our planet. A fresh look and update was undertaken by the international Eastern Tropical Oceans Synthesis Working Group, with a specific focus on comparing and contrasting the physical processes governing the two basins. Too few low clouds in...

The SCAR Strategic Plan 2017-2022 is now available online. For more detailed information, please access here.

Sea surface and upper ocean temperatures are controlled by the heat flux through the ocean surface, namely insolation, outgoing and incoming infrared radiation, sensible heat flux, latent heat flux and advection, including upwelling. While sea surface temperature warming was observed in most of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and the Western Pacific Ocean, the Central Tropical and the Eastern...
