University of Florida scientists discover the cause of Atlantic coastline’s sea level rise hot spots is driven by the combined effects o naturally occurring ocean-atmosphere processes, El Niño (ENSO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). These findings challenge previous arguments that a hot spot north of Cape Hatteras over the past few decades was due to a slowdown of circulation in the North Atlantic, which is itself due to global warming.
