The theory I have outlined here is akin to the stadium wave theory but its also connected to phases in ocean temperatures resulting from stripping ice insulation off northern seas. Low ice extent in Arctic provides millions of square kilometers of open ocean to allow processes such polynyas, frazil ice, and larger refreezes supercharging super cold highly saline water getting pumped to the bottom of the arctic ocean.
There has to be a hugely robust process for the cooling of ocean bottoms since they are sandwiched between a hot earth core and ocean surfaces and climates above world wide that are somewhere around 13 to 15C hotter than the ocean bottoms.
The ocean oscillations have corresponded to the opening of ice in the northwest passage for the Hudson Bay Company and subsequently the first NW passage single year transit by Henry Larsen and again in the latest decade. The effects are also observable in west coast saltwater and anadromous fisheries which led to the discovery of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation in 1996.
However, almost all the data regarding these processes has occurred during a period of time where a grand solar minimum was firing up and now perhaps is tailing off. When one considers that the oceans themselves might be responsible for multi-century and perhaps cycles well exceeding a thousand years we are just beginning to scratch the surface of the complexities of climate.
Do you mean 'Grand Solar Maximum' there Iceman?
I have to agree with you we have been watching one ripple that has lasted several generations, unaware that the ripple is the tail end of a huge breaker and there is another one to follow but our extremely small window on the processes does not allow us to see that.
