retarded-torpedo.jpgHow does one study climate? The Earth’s atmosphere seems to make a sensible source for answers. But probing deeper and a whole century of proven misconceptions would tell otherwise. The oceans, whose top few meters alone store as much heat energy as the entire atmosphere, make a surprising yet logical starting place to predict climate changes. The vastness and depth of these waters, however, clearly make it a challenge for the scientific community to survey and observe changes at a cost-sensitive platform.
