How variable are ocean temperatures?

This item was filled under Climate
The earth's climate appears to have been more variable over the past 7,000 years than often thought. In a new study, scientists show that sea surface temperatures reconstructed from climate archives vary to a much greater extent on long time scales than simulated by climate models. The consequence: either the analyzed climate archives supply inaccurate temperature signals, or the tested models underestimate the regional climate fluctuations in the Earth's recent history....
