Abstract

The only reliable measurements of ocean temperatures show a statistically not significant warming over the decade since they started

Author(s): Albert Parker

TheArgo Programme is aimed to assess the warming of our oceans through measurements of temperatures through a global-array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats sampling the upper 2000 mof the ocean. The programme is returning after a decade of operation a negligible warming of the lower layer 700m to 2000m. This small warming is rated at about 0.0012 °C/year well below the 0.0070 °C/year of the climate model predictions and well below the actual accuracy of the combined computational and experimental procedure, certainlymuch larger than the claimed ± 0.0050 °C.
