First-ever daily time series reveals strength of deep ocean circulation system in the South Atlantic

The study may have large implications for the climate and weather forecasts made by ocean models in the future. 

Study introduces new model processing technique, shows North Atlantic climate highly predictable 4 August 2020

Study introduces new model processing technique, shows North Atlantic climate highly predictable

Climate model projections can be hindered by complexities inherent in the climate system, and difficulty in detecting the part of the forecast that can be accurately predicted (signals) as well as constraining uncertainties (noise). These problems can be hard to fix, as climate model projections cannot be verified until there are observations.
