    High-resolution ocean model provides insight into sea turtles’ lost years

    An exquisitely detailed global ocean model simulation from NCAR has given scientists rare insight into where baby sea turtles may go in their “lost years” after they scramble off the sandy beaches where they are born and swim into the open ocean.

  3. Ocean heat changing over time in the different layers of the ocean

    2020 was a record-breaking year for ocean heat

    The temperatures in the upper 2,000 meters of the ocean hit a record high in 2020, according to a new analysis by a research team that included scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The five hottest years for the upper ocean on record have all occurred since 2015.

    Climate change is creating a significantly more stratified ocean, new study finds

    The decrease in ocean mixing could amplify warming due to human-caused climate change at the Earth’s surface, intensify ocean acidification, and impact the marine food chain, among other impacts.
