Gregory C. Johnson, a NOAA oceanographer at the Pacific Marine Environmental Lab, and John M. Lyman, an oceanographer at NOAA’s cooperative institute with the University of Hawaii, the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, have written an essay published online in Nature Climate Change about how a new international program can help fill a major gap in information about the heat in the deep ocean. We caught up with Johnson to learn more.

NOAA flies over Arctic to measure extent of sea ice

Annual fall mission helps gauge climate change in Arctic

NOAA researchers set out this week on a two-week mission to fly over the Arctic to measure how much the ice has melted over the summer and gauge the speed of this fall’s refreezing of sea ice. This is the second year in a row scientists have flown above Arctic waters.  Data gathered from both years is testing a hypothesis that increased summer heat stored in the newly sea-ice free areas of the Arctic Ocean lead to surface heat fluxes in autumn that are large enough to have impacts on atmospheric temperature, humidity, wind and cloud distributions.
