'Missing' Heat May Affect Future Climate Change
Description: Satellite sensors show that the amount of greenhouse-trapped solar energy, or heat, has risen over recent years. But in the past decade, there has been a growing divergence between the satellite readings and ocean observations that indicate the build-up of heat is slowing. This "missing" heat could be the result of instrument error or incorrect data, but much of it may be going into the deep ocean or elsewhere on Earth that is beyond the reach of current sensors.
