I wonder if that means the north east hurricane season is going to be worse this year.

So any ideas when this would happen. Either way I wonder what do we do if this is going to happen. Me personally i'm somewhat scared that this could become a reality in a short amount of time.

Today... July 2nd, 2004 buoy 44018 monitored by the NDBC registered a 15 degree drop in temperature in 3 hours. This is one of 3 buoys in the general region that has shown some wild temperature swings over he past several days. The winds didnt indicated anything unusual. They averaged a direction of SSE to SSW all day and the speeds were usually between 11 and 15mph. There is nothing to indicate that any great storm system came through that could have caused such a temperature swing. Any ideas? Or comments?

I believe it is worse than we are being told because the real data does show a very dramaitc change perhaps a few super massive hurricanes, very slow moving and more powerful than we've seen in our lifetimes?

Indy... As long as there is a large temperature differential between the poles and the equator, warmer water will flow northward as well as southward to the poles. While some specific current flows may be affected by salinity and other more minor factors, temperature differential is one of the major driving forces. In very simplistic terms: If there is a lack of warm water flowing towards the poles, then the water near the equator isn't warm enough.

Outland, let me ask you. what exactly makes it so that there is an exchange between cold water from the north and warm water from the Ecuador? How does the exchange occur and why? Let me give you a hint, salinity.
