EOS AGU research spotlight - Equisha Glenn

Eos is the leading source for trustworthy news and perspectives about the Earth and space sciences and their impact. Its namesake is Eos, the Greek goddess of the dawn, who represents the light shed on understanding our planet and its environment in space by the Earth and space sciences. Recently EOS highlighted CREST Student Equisha Glenn in an article titled "Sea Surface Temperatures on the Rise in the Caribbean"

Sea surface temperature offers insight into the behavior of climatological phenomena like convection cells, tropical storms and hurricanes, and prevailing winds. These mechanisms converge in the Intra-Americas Region (IAR), which includes the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and parts of North and South America.

The region is also home to phenomena like the midsummer drought and the Atlantic Warm Pool, which work in conjunction with small-scale mechanisms to transport moisture—and storms—to North America. This vital function makes the IAR particularly sensitive to changes in climate. Determining how climate change affects the IAR is crucial to understanding how global temperature changes will manifest locally
