NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) recently featured a study conducted by ESSIC Associate Research Scientist Dr. Alexey Mishonov and ESSIC / CICS-MD Senior Faculty Specialist James Reagan.
The study, “Eddy‐Resolving In Situ Ocean Climatologies of Temperature and Salinity in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean”, was published in the January 2019 issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans and discussed the development of a new decadally averaged high-resolution (1/10°) ocean climatology for the Northwest Atlantic.
NCEI writes that the study could help uncover many details of long‐term ocean climate variability with much higher than previously achievable spatial resolution.
Mishonov is a researcher with extensive experience in various fields of oceanography, including ocean color, water transmissivity, particulate organic carbon research, oceanographic data management and analysis as well as ocean climate change.
Reagan is affiliated with NOAA and the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) where his current research focuses on attaining a better understanding of salinity/freshwater variability in the global ocean, which could shed new light on the hydrological cycle.
