Global temperature is a useful metric for global climate that helps define the potential amplitude of slow climate feedbacks, such as ice sheet melt and sea level rise. Annual temperature in 2016, enhanced by the 2015-2016 El Nino, was +1.3 degC relative to 1880-1920. Read More

We use numerical climate simulations, paleoclimate data, and modern observations to study the effect of growing ice melt from Antarctica and Greenland. Meltwater tends to stabilize the ocean column, inducing amplifying feedbacks that increase subsurface ocean warming and ice shelf melting. Cold meltwater and induced dynamical effects cause ocean surface cooling in the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic, thus increasing Earth's energy imbalance and heat flux into most of the global ocean's surface.
