• Mean sea level: average height of the sea surface over a 19-year period.

  • These containers float just below the sea surface and represent a serious hazard to navigation.

  • Storm surge: a rise in the sea surface on an open coast, often resulting from a hurricane.

  • This is the case for global sea surface temperatures, which alarmists claim should be sucking up much of the predicted human-induced warming.

    FORBES: Ten Years And Counting: Where's The Global Warming?

  • The effect of these strengthened winds whipping across the sea surface is to bring deeper, more carbon-rich water up from below, thus reducing the surface layer's capacity to absorb more CO2 from the air.

  • This Ocean forecasting system could generate crucial forecast information, such as ocean circulation, sea surface temperature, wave height, to serve the needs of a variety of human activities related to marine hazards mitigation, oil and gas exploration, fisheries, navigation, marine parks management and coastal recreational activities.

  • These short-term global fluctuations are associated principally with natural oscillations of tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures summarized in the Nino index in the lower part of the figure. 2012 is nominally the 9th warmest year, but it is indistinguishable in rank with several other years, as shown by the error estimate for comparing nearby years.

  • It is a collaborative partnership of more than 30 nations from all continents, all working together to provide a seamless global array of over 3, 000 profiling floats moving up and down in the water column from the sea surface to 2, 000 meters and measuring temperature, salinity, and depth during every ascent to the sea surface.

  • The fifth is the observation in reality of a predicted link between increased sea-surface temperatures and the frequency of the most intense categories of hurricane, typhoon and tropical storm.

  • Although the temperature on Ascension has not changed appreciably in the past 30 years, sea-surface temperatures upwind of it jumped by more than a degree in the 1980s before levelling off.

  • In this week's issue of Science Dr Watson and his colleagues use these data—combined with data from elsewhere on sea-surface temperatures and the amount of mixing going on under the surface—to produce figures for the total size of the North Atlantic carbon sink during 2005.
