    "A new research of ocean warming has just been released in Geophysical Research Letters by Balmaseda, Trenberth, and Källén (2013). There are various important results which can be drawn from this paper."

    Ok. Post a link to at least the abstract of a science news article about it. What important results? What do you want to discuss about it? Yes, we could probably look it up, but as the originator the easier it is the more likely you'll get participation.

    Nobody can actually see this process in action; instead, Trenberth and his colleagues used sophisticated ocean-circulation models and fed in observed data about sea-surface temperatures, winds, currents and even changes in sea level, all of which affect how heat moves around. In the end, changes in the wind turned out to have the most profound effect. It’s still a circumstantial case, but, said Trenberth, “we find it very plausible that this is a real effect.”

    This appears to be somewhat speculative. I couldn't readily find the actual paper- the above quote is from an article. Could you please post a link? Thank you.

    Please make yourself familiar with Google Scholar. Copy-pasted the authors and it was the first hit.

    The study finds that the rise in ocean heat (and temperature) in recent decades is far faster than anything seen earlier in the Holocene, the period since the end of the last ice age.

    That is an entertaining claim.
    Prove it!
