Diurnal Cycle of sea surface temperature in frontal regions and reflections on an Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS)
On December 6, 2021, Meghan Cronin gave a virtual presentation to ECMWF, describing the importance of accurate skin temperature (the inclusion of a cool skin effect and the diurnal warm layer) to the coupling of the ocean and atmosphere. The video link will be posted directly once available, and a direct link to the BlueJeans recording can be found at the bottom of this page: https://events.ecmwf.int/event/288/.
Making Game-Changing Air-Sea Interaction Observations for 2030
See Meghan Cronin's Smart Oceans 2020 video, describing how air-sea interaction observations could lead to better long-term weather and climate forecasts and other societally important benefits.
