A "Blob" Blog!

Check it out -- the Alaska "Blob" Tracker -- for all the Blob news that's fit to print!

It was established at the end of July by the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), the Alaska branch of a non-profit, the Integrated Ocean Observing System Association, which supports coastal marine data gathering around the U.S.

This Aug. 11, 2015, article from the Alaska Dispatch News explains how the AOOS came to realize the need for a Blob blog.

In case you missed it when I posted about it earlier, check out: El Niño vs. the Blob: which will win out this winter? a 1:24 animation by KPCC's science desk that helped me understand how the Blob is not El Niño. And how it may thwart the efforts of El Niño to bring rain to parched California.
