Recent Warm Anomalies in the Ocean (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

In late 2013, the Northeast Pacific Ocean gradually warmed relative to our historic records. By February 2014, a patch of over a thousand square kilometres and 100 metres deep was nearly three degrees Celsius warmer than usual. The effects of this "blob" were experienced across North America, and lingered in the coastal waters of the Salish Sea for nearly three years. This presentation will review the causes and consequences of this event, and suggest possible links to climate shifts in the entire northern hemisphere, including the role of the significant changes occurring in the Arctic.
