THE LITTLE BOY El Niño and natural climate change by Anastasios Tsonis is a newly published GWPF report discussing how the ocean drives climate fluctuations.

Other posts provide background on climate effects from oceans.
Climate Report from the Water World discusses the linkage of global temperatures to ocean temperatures (SST).
Empirical Evidence: Oceans Make Climate presents in situ measurements of the ocean-air heat exchange flux.
