Jason Box on New Hansen Study
March 25, 2016
Dr. Jason Box of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland is chief scientist for the Dark Snow Project, and was co-author of a recent paper on changing dynamics in the North Atlantic.
That paper, from last March, has gotten some more attention in the wake of the new, hotly debated paper by James Hansen which was published this week, describing potentially serious impacts on North Atlantic weather and storms from continued melting of Greenland ice, as well as catastrophic sea level impacts sooner than most scientists expect.
For a view of what Dr. Box is talking about, see map below. The stubborn blue “cold spot” in the north atlantic, while most of the global ocean surface is warming – has been the subject of increasing discussion and study over the last few years.
