Extended Data Fig. 3: Spatial variability in thermal displacement is more dependent on spatial SST gradients than on MHW intensity.

From: Thermal displacement by marine heatwaves

Extended Data Fig. 3

a, b, Colours represent the number of 0.25° OISST grid cells that fall into each bin of thermal displacement and MHW intensity (a) or SST gradient (b). The sum of grid cells in all bins is the total number of ice-free OISST grid cells (n ≈ 500,000). Spearman rank correlations are r = −0.27 (a) and r = −0.81 (b).
