Paul Kiel - Warming hole in the north Atlantic and climate change forcing

Welcome to Shaping the Future. In this episode, I am talking to Paul Keil who is a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology about the mysterious cold blob in the northern Atlantic Ocean.

This cold blob appears conspicuously on global temperature anomaly charts located south of Greenland.

It is currently the focus of a lot of research looking at the mechanisms that contribute to climate change and how these are being impacted by the billions of tonnes of CO2 we add annually to the atmosphere.


I have also added links to two recent articles posted by the Carbon Brief and Mashable that look at Paul and his colleagues' research in more detail.
