Climate Monster Found Lurking in Ocean Depths

An article appearing in the November 1 issue of Science magazine analyzes mid-depth Pacific Ocean temperatures going back 10,000 years and finds a drastic increase in the amount of heat being absorbed and stored by ocean waters during the last 60 years . The study, by authors at Rutgers University, Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Insitution, reconstructs the history of temperatures in the western Pacific roughly 500-900 meters down through chemical analysis of shells from a species of single-celled organisms called foraminifers (or "forams"). The ratio of magnesium to calcium in the particular foram selected for study and found in ocean sediment cores, Hyalinea balthica , is a precise indicator of ambient temperature at the time the organism lived and died--a standard technique in paleoclimatology. The three researchers ...
