The Humming of Marine Heat Waves

Provided by Ana Oliveira, CoLAB +ATLANTIC

This video presents a transcription of ocean data on the annual number of MHW into a piano composition over an animation, showing these extreme events during the last few decades, preceded by a thoughtful and somewhat poetical reflection on climate change. The video is the result of a multidisciplinary team-effort, from the project development up to the musical transcription and visual communication approach.
More details can be found on the CoLAB +ATLANTIC page: colabatlantic.com/news/The-Humming-of-Marine-Heat-Waves. All the credits go to the Marine Heat Waves team, at CoLAB +ATLANTIC.

GHRSST is very happy to host this video on its Vimeo page as an example of transdisciplinary collaboration for raising awareness on climate change.

 

Sea surface temperature, the measurement of ocean emotion

Provided by Helen Beggs, Australian Bureau of Meteorology

On 28 May 2021 Agriculture Victoria published a podcast about sea surface temperature observations as part of their new “My Rain Gauge is Busted” Podcast Series to inform farmers in an engaging and entertaining manner about weather and seasonal prediction. Episode 2 “Sea surface temperature, the measurement of ocean emotion”  gives a potted history of in-situ and satellite SST observations aimed at farmers and other users of seasonal prediction services. Helen Beggs, one of the most active members of the Science Team, was interviewed for Episode 2. The other episodes in the podcast series are very informative and enjoyable!  Check them out: https://agriculture.vic.gov.au/support-and-resources/podcasts/my-rain-gauge-is-busted-podcast-series
