Research Interest

Dawicky, 2003 mentioned earth’s warming surface may be intensifying evaporation over oceans in the low latitudes–raising salinity concentrations there–and transporting fresher water vapor via the atmosphere toward Earth’s poles. Curry et al, 2003 explained that tropical ocean waters (Atlantic) have become dramatically saltier over the past 40 years, while oceans closer to Earth’s poles have become fresher.
