This global ocean warming issue has been bothering me. I have been doing amateur weather reporting for WSAV-TV in Savannah, Georgia for three years. One year I noticed our ocean temps were already 86 by early July and that seemed very unusual for so early in the summer.


I tried finding out if that was an anomaly but so far I can't find anyone in NOAA, NODC, NESDIS or NWS with that answer, When I get to certain sites my computer warns me not to download those files so I'm wondering if you can answer my query: Were the high ocean temps off South Carolina highly unusual or not?

Thanks so much for your time,

Barry's Response - Betty:

Seems strange, that you would not be able to get the help you need from the seemingly credible organizations you listed.

I Googled "historical atlantic water temperatures" (without quotes), and this was the first result.

http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/wtg12.html

It gives tables of temperatures by month for various locales including Savannah Beach.

Try varying your search phrase or engine and see if you get anything more helpful.

If the temperature was higher than normal, would you also say that the hurricane season was more active than usual? I thought so, but you might know better. Anyway, there is a global ocean warming connection, as you probably know.

You might also wonder if the projected changes in sea level will have any effect on hurricane. Probably not, but who knows?

I think it is a good idea to be worried about our temperatures rising in the oceans. I thought it was a good article. Short and sweet. It made me think about global ocean warming more. I would never of thought about it until this article. It is good to keep people informed. I would like to go explore another site. It would be interesting to find out more information. Just more information on global ocean warming .

I think we have been getting more 'freak' temperatures. Especially in the UK side of the Atlantic, many summers go by getting very little warm weather these years! Thanks for posting the data chart. Just out of interest what is the relevance of a more active hurricane season on temperatures?

maybe it`s nothing to worry about. maybe net year the temperatures will come back to normal. only if the temperature mentains it`s high values, than it is a real problem
