Ocean color affects tropical cyclone formation

Ocean color affects tropical cyclone formation. Another filler post from Anthony Watts, this time a press release from all the way back on 13 August about a NOAA paper titled “How ocean color can steer Pacific tropical cyclones“. I suppose this is fodder for the “them climate scientists don’t know a dang thing” file.

The climate modeling premise? “Greener” water absorbs more heat and heats the air above more, with the effect of pushing cyclones towards higher latitudes and increasing their energy. An interesting finding.
