Question about Ocean atmosphere heat transfer, ...

edited February 8 in Oceans
... also differences between ocean absorbing 'sun's' direct rays vs. 'atmosphere's' infrared radiation.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Seems to me this place should be receiving way more traffic and discussion than it has.
I'd like to suggest that this could be a good forum for people to come with their serious climate questions to groups source them.
Here let me give an example of what I'm talking about.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


1)  Does the way I worded distinction in the opening sentence make sense?

2)  What do you make of this sentence (in regard to the Arctic Ocean):
                      "The ocean emits more heat than it receives from the sun."

3)  Is that true on the face of it?
4)  How significant is the omission of __?__ infrared radiation received by the oceans?

5)  What's the latest on how a melting ice cap is impacting the Arctic Ocean?
5a)  Impact of newly exposed surface to ocean heat uptake in that region?
5b)  Ocean 
evaporation and convection currents - how are they're impacting atmospheric dynamics?
5c)  What's new on Jet Stream observations
5d)  What's happening with Arctic Ocean currents currently? o   Now that there's easier access between Atlantic and Pacific Ocean waters?
5e)  What major dynamic(s) am I missing here?
