The Gulfstream makes northern Europe warmer by transporting heat. This is well known. New research shows that the sea surface temperature also affects storm tracks as far away as the Pacific.

A new study provides evidence of substantial variations in past sea ice cover in the Norwegian Sea, instrumental for several abrupt climate changes between 32,000 and 40,000 years ago. 

Vannet som strømmer inn i Barentshavet og Polhavet er blitt varmere det siste hundreåret. Fra år til år er det likevel strømmens styrke som regulerer hvor mye varme sjøisen utsettes for.  

The temperature of the subpolar North Atlantic is going lower. This implies decreasing cod stocks in the Barents Sea over the next five to six years, shows study.

The Arctic is about to shrink, shows a new study, as an important part of the Arctic Ocean shifts over to an Atlantic climate regime. The rapid climate shift occurs in the northern Barents Sea—the Arctic warming hotspot where the surface warming and loss of winter sea ice is largest in the entire Arctic. 

On TV weather maps we see low pressure centers as circles resembling tree-rings, with long tails of red warm fronts and blue cold fronts. But what came first – the low or the fronts?
