Item #d93apr40

"Temperature and Size Variabilities of the Western Pacific Warm Pool," X.-H. Yan (Ctr. Remote Sensing, Univ. Delaware, Newark DE 19716), C.R. Ho et al., Science, 258(5088), 1643-1645, Dec. 4, 1992.

Satellite multichannel sea surface temperature observations from 1982 to 1991 show that both annual mean temperature and the size of the warm pool increased from 1983 to 1987 and fluctuated thereafter. Possible causes include solar irradiance variations, El NiƱo-Southern Oscillation events, volcanic activities and global warming.

Item #d93apr41

"Interdecadal Natural Climate Variability in the Western Pacific and Its Implication in Global Warming," T. Yamagata (Dept. Earth Phys., Univ. Tokyo, Tokyo 113, Japan), J. Meteor. Soc. Japan, 70(1B), 167-175, Feb. 1992.

Long-term hydrographic observations made by the Japan Meteorological Agency in the western Pacific have revealed not only the oceanic thermal variability associated with ENSO events, but also an interdecadal variability seemingly related to the global warming trend from the late 1970s.
