A Pause in the Action

I hope we can have a conversation about the warming ocean on this blog - the questions and answers at the end of the last post are a place to start. Obviously I have a lot to learn. When I started reading WU blogs, I didn't realize I would end up doing so much research!

But first I'm going out to Santa Fe for a week - 75% business, 25% tourist. I'll be checking in on all the blogs I follow here (the iPad is a wonderful thing), but no heavy duty computer work for awhile.

So in my absence, carry on.

Best wishes and good weather for you all.

whoops, too late! I tidied up the place so you could re-open.
The ponies were getting tired anyways...

The weather in SE lower Michigan has been great and is expected to stay that way for another week. Peek in the wxchaser97 blog for daily updates.

Have a safe trip back!
Thanks for the help :-)

I didn't realize wxchaser97 was blogging about local weather. He's only about 15 miles from me, so that will be helpful. Last year was pretty nice when I got home but in 2010 and 2011 it rained for a week; I wanted to turn around and drive back to Ft Myers!

hey FLwolverine, Sante Fe must be keeping you busy. Don't work too hard!
Thanks. It was a good trip and a good conference. Now I have to pack up to go back to Michigan -- and of course the weather here has been beautiful, just to make the packing harder!

I'm trying to decide where to go with this blog and what my priorities are. Thanks for all your input and support. I especially like the intermission posts.

PS. If for some reason Brian has to shut this blog down, or if it gets disrupted because he's not around to monitor, I will host troll free site at my blog. It's important to have a quiet place to talk.

Thanks Daisy that was well received and I get it now.

One thing though, Naga said that the winds on the surface of the water in the antarctic is creating more surface ice. Wouldn't that mean that the warm surface water is decreasing in temperature more because it's becoming ice on the surface first making it colder as it drifts down into the depths?.[...]


Not necessarily. Ice is an excellent insulator. Keep in mind too, that the amount of ice that Antarctica is gaining pales in comparison to the loss in the Arctic. I think the last time I checked, the ice gained around Antarctica was about the size of Connecticut, while the ice loss in the Arctic Ocean was about twice the size of Alaska. Either way, surface waters moving into the polar oceans from the lower latitudes will always cool when the get to the poles. The question nowadays is how much.

Also Naga, I guess this also is something you can explain more. How does the added surface ice on the water directly relate to a global warming trend.
