I just thought I would bring this field of study up because the subject of how the Earths Ocean works is one that is becoming ever more important in gaining an understanding of global warming the greatest threat to our survival as a species. I'ld like to see some discussion on the role the ocean plays in things like global warming, weather, etc.

The role of the oceans is even bigger than you think. Focus especially on the records of the late Pleistocene, Some semi random keywords: Melt Water Pulse 1a, Amazon Fan clathrate instability, Cariaco Basin, Storegga slide.

But don't think that it is all warming and cooling that you see.
