Role of the ocean in anthropogenic climate change

In recent years I have begun work on the role of the ocean in anthropogenic climate change and in particular:

  • quantifying rates of heat and carbon uptake by the ocean in a warming world, and identifying underlying mechanisms: [153], [140]
  • studying patterns, and particularly inter-hemispheric asymmetries in, the amplitude and timing of the sea surface temperature response to Greenhouse Gas forcing: [149], [144]
  • southern hemisphere stratosphere-troposphere-ocean interaction in response to forcing by the Antarctic Ozone Hole: see the ‘Ozone and Climate Project’.

News stories about some of these studies can be found via the links opposite.
