If circulation of deep waters in the Atlantic stops or slows due to climate change, it could cause cooling in northern North America and Europe—a scenario that has occurred during past cold glacial periods. Now, a Rutgers coauthored study suggests that short-term disruptions of deep ocean circulation occurred...
There seems to be no respite in the exceptional warmth that we have seen across much of Europe, Scandinavia and western Russia this winter. Mean temperature anomalies for the first thirteen days of March are close to +10°C across the Ukraine, it’s no wonder that the SST’s in...
As far as I can see from the SII data that I download from the NSIDC, it looks like the Arctic sea ice season 2019-20 has returned the highest maximum sea ice extent in seven years to confound many of the experts. Admittedly a lot of the sea...
I think we can safely say that the season minimum in the Antarctic has now been passed on the 19th of February, a couple of days earlier than average, with a minimum sea ice extent of 2.656 million square kilometres in the SII data that I download from...
The Arctic sea ice extent on the 11th of February was the highest for that date since 2015. The total had climbed to within two standard deviations of average and was only 3.8% below the 1988-2016 LTA for that date, which is quite remarkable given that it started from the second lowest minimum on record back in September,
All we need now is a warm blob to suddenly occur of the coast of Japan and for Godzilla to make an appearance!
A quick look at what they are and where they are
Mean temperatures across Russia have continued to be well above average so far this January as they were in December.

Having said that the sea extent is almost 14% lower than the LTA with a massive gap in the Weddell sea and large hole in the Ross sea.

Is it time to bring Captain Nemo or perhaps Troy Tempest out of retirement to investigate the cause of the latest warm blob in the Pacific ocean?
