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...

The EGU General Assembly 2017 will be organized from April 23 - 28, 2017 in Vienna, Austria.
