Title: The perplexing trends in climate over the Pacific Ocean and why they are important

Abstract: The planet is warming due to the burning of fossil fuels, but the geographical distribution (pattern) of the observed warming over the Pacific Ocean is profoundly different from our expectations based on all climate model results. In this talk I will explore myriad possible reasons for this discrepancy and the implications for changes in climate in the future, globally and locally (e.g., in Southern California).

The Department of Earth System Science acknowledges our presence on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Acjachemen and Tongva peoples, who still hold strong cultural, spiritual and physical ties to this region.
