Hayley Evers-King (EUMETSAT) - Marine Heatwaves - how can SST anomalies influence HW over land?


Hayley Evers-King talks about marine heatwaves and using Jupyter Notebooks for satellite data processing and visulization. 


Heatwaves don't just happen on land, but also at sea. Periods of extreme regional ocean warming are becoming more frequent and more extreme, affecting our oceans most diverse ecosystems, and those upon which human society depends. In this presentation we'll see how satellite data can be used to identify marine heatwaves, via a practical demonstration in a Python Jupyter Notebook. We'll also consider the connections between heatwaves on land and those that happen at sea.
