Sandy Delgado, a CIMAS Research Associate the National Hurricane Center funded through the Climate Program Office's Climate Monitoring Program, had the opportunity to visit Cuba as a participant in the VIII Cuban Congress of Meteorology in Havana.

Temporal variability of the South Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation between 20°S and 35°S

Wednesday, December 09, 2015

The Meridional Overturning Circulation plays a critical role in global and regional heat and freshwater budgets by carrying water properties northward and southward within individual ocean basins. This COD-supported research, published in Geophysical Research Letters, examines altimetry-derived synthetic temperature and salinity profiles between 20°S and 34.5°S  to estimate the Meridional Overturning Circulation and meridional heat transport.

The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S

Tuesday, December 01, 2015

CPO’s Climate Observation Division supported a paper published in Geophysical Research Letters. The goal of this manuscript--”The impact of historical biases on the XBT-derived meridional overturning circulation estimates at 34°S”--is assess how the historical expendable bathythermograph measurement errors may affect the meridional mass and heat transport across one key ocean section in the South Atlantic Ocean.

XBT Science: assessment of instrumental biases and errors

Monday, November 30, 2015

A new study funded by CPO’s Climate Observation Division was recently published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. The study by Cheng et al.examines in-depth studies and offers recommendations for correcting biases in expendable bathythermograph (XBT) data.
