    The hypothesis that upper Ocean temperature anomalies that developed over the North Pacific Ocean during the fall-winter of 1976-77 were primarily generated by vertical mixing processes was tested using the Garwood (1977) mixed layer model. A series of points along 175 deg W and along 38 deg N were chosen for use in this preliminary study. Atmospheric forcing for the one-dimensional ocean model was derived from the surface heat budget calculations in the Fleet Numerical Weather Central (FNWC) atmospheric prediction model. The suitability of the FNWC heat flux calculations was evaluated through comparison with the upper ocean heat content changes derived from the TRANSPAC analyses. The comparisons showed better agreement along 175 deg W than along 38 deg N. A series of ocean thermal structure predictions from 15 September to 31 December 1976 were made using the time series of the atmospheric forcing and the initial profile from the September TRANSPAC analysis. In the central region near 38 deg N, 165 deg W the predicted thermal structure agreed very well with the TRANSPAC analysis for December 1976. Near the southern and western ends of the domain, the temperature predictions were systematically lower than the analyzed values between the surface and 200 m. (Author)

    Sea surface temperature refers to the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean. An anomaly is a departure from average conditions. These maps compare temperatures in a given month to the long-term average temperature of that month from through Monthly (thin lines) and month running mean (thick lines or filled colors in case of Nino Index) global land-ocean temperature anomaly, global land and sea surface temperature, and El Nino index. All have a base period Figure also available in PDF.

Monthly; Weekly; This map shows the number of months out of the six months indicated in which the standardized sea surface temperature anomaly exceeded +1 standard deviation or fell below -1 standard deviation of the mean.   Depth-longitude sections of anomalous equatorial ocean temperatures (°C) for the recent 13 weeks. Contour interval is 1°C. Anomalies are departures from the base period means. (Analysis is based on NOAA/PMEL TAO buoy data, TOPEX/POSEIDON sea .

    The flowchart for STA estimation at different depth levels (e.g., m depth) of the global ocean via RF model is shown in Figure 1. There are three steps: training data set preparation and input, RF training for the prediction model, and RF estimation by the model. There are only two parameters for an RF regression, n tree and m by: 8. NOAA map of worldwide land and sea temperature anomalies (difference from the average temperature from –).

This report is based on research reported at the NORPAX Co-Principal Investigators Meeting held at Lake Arrowhead, Calif., on *»-8 June The hypothesis that upper ocean temperature anomalies that developed over the North Pacific Ocean during the fall-winter of were primarily generated by vertical mixing processes was tested using the Garwood () mixed layer model.

Two cases of pronounced, long-term cold anomalies from the North Pacific Ocean Experiment TRANSPAC monthly analyses during are studied. The first case developed after October and persisted to June Two periods of amplification of the anomaly are identified.

The second anomaly was the most extreme cold anomaly in the four-year sample. A one-dimensional mathematical model for direct calculation of the longitudinal mixing parameters and distribution of excess temperatures is presented.

The model has been applied for prediction of excess temperatures due to an increase in cooling water discharge in a Danish estuary, Kalundborg : Hans Schrøder, Peter Mortensen. Improved seasonal prediction of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies over the global oceans is the theme of this paper.

Using 13 state-of-the-art coupled global atmosphere–ocean models and 13 yr of seasonal forecasts, the performance of individual models, the ensemble mean, the bias-removed ensemble mean, and the Florida State University (FSU) superensemble are by: The model sea surface temperature variability is a bit weak, but reproduces the main features of interannual variability during the –98 period.

The model compares well with the TAO current variability at the equator, with correlation/rms differences of / m s 1 for surface currents. At the time of the onset of the monsoon in June the sea surface temperatures in the eastern Arabian Sea were higher than normal.

A prediction experiment designed to reveal the effects of this anomaly on the onset is described. This involves two 8‐day forecasts made using the same model and the same initial by:   We analyze the processes responsible for the generation and evolution of sea-surface temperature anomalies observed in the Southern Ocean during a decade based on a 2D diagnostic mixed-layer model in which geostrophic advection is prescribed from altimetry.

In view of simple algebra, the model is one-dimensional, frictionless, and neglects the turbulence production by the mean-flow shear in the thermocline.

Climatologies and Standardized Anomalies Climatology is commonly known as the study of our climate, yet the term encompasses many other important definitions. Climatology is also defined as the long-term average of a given variable, often over time periods of years.

The focus here is on SST anomalies in the extra-tropics. On timescales from months to decades, the ocean may play an important role in shaping SST.

For short-term global climate prediction, the sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies associated with the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon are recognized as the most dominant forcing factor (e.g., Wallace et al. ; Trenberth et al. ; Lau and Nath ; Su et al. ; Annamalai and Liu ).Of special interest here is the role of El Niño on the Pacific–North Cited by:   Using monthly mean data from the Hadley Center and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction‐National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP‐NCAR) reanalysis, we have constructed two new indices I CP and I EP of boreal summer sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTA) in equatorial Pacific for period of – by employing methods including the six‐order Cited by: 7.

In all experiments, forecast anomalies are formed relative to the forecast model climatology for –, which is a function of both start date and lead time, thus, a first‐order linear correction for model mean bias is made in a similar fashion to that of Stockdale.

The feasibility of seasonal prediction (see Table for definitions of prediction, forecast, and predictability) largely rests on the existence of slow, and predictable, variations in the Earth’s boundary conditions of soil moisture, snow cover, sea ice, and ocean surface temperature (e.g., Shukla and Kinter, ) and how the atmosphere interacts with and is affected by these boundary Cited by: 2.
