Applications for he Summer School on Application of Ocean and Coastal Data and Modelling Products are now being received.

This programme is organized for marine scientists in Africa, in order to build African capacity to access and utilize meteorological/oceanographic/coastal data from in situ and satellite observations, as well as those generated from ocean models to produce useful services for local use, for a wide variety of human and economic benefit purposes.

The application should be sent to Mr This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  not later than 20 February 2014. Please see here for details and requirements. 

Deep ocean waters below 700 meters

argo-floathave heated up unexpectedly since the year 2000, according to a new study published on May 10, 2013 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. The study has used Argo profiler data to show that deep ocean waters below 700 meters (2,300 feet) have been warming. The deep ocean warming appears to be unprecedented. Scientists think that changes in surface wind patterns may be partly responsible for driving heat away from the surface layers and into deeper waters.

Magdalena Balmaseda, lead author of the new study, is a scientist affiliated with the European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMRWF). Co-authors of the study included Kevin Trenberth from the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado and Erland Källén from ECMRWF.
