Marine heatwaves are becoming ubiquitous features of our changing oceans that seem to reoccur in some regions more frequently than others. Why, you might ask? To answer this we proposed to use Microsoft Azure to integrate AI tools with petabyte-sized climate model data to identify and map ocean regions most susceptible to marine heatwaves in past, present, and future climates.
