The world's oceans are heating up for the new studies show that getting faster and faster. According to a report by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in the journal "Science". The latest findings according to theory previous reports that the warming in the past few years, have exposed.
"The warming of the oceans is a very important indicator of climate change, and we have solid evidence that it is warming faster than we thought," said co-author Zeke house father of the University of California.
The report is based on four studies that were published between 2014 and 2017. An important factor for the more accurate Numbers a Maritime surveillance fleet with the name of Argo, the almost 4000 driving the robot belong to. This drive, according to the study of the oceans and diving every couple of days to a depth of 2000 meters, to measure data such as temperature and pH-value.
Warmer water - higher sea level
The new analysis shows that the warming of the oceans corresponds to the measurement data of the rising air temperatures. The emissions should not be reduced to greenhouse gas emissions, temperatures could increase up to a sea depth of 2000 meters by the end of the century, by 0.78 degrees Celsius, according to the study. Because the sea water would expand, would lead to a rise in sea levels of up to 30 centimeters.
"During 2018 the fourth-warmest year since measurements on the surface of the earth, it is certainly the warmest in the oceans - just as already in 2017 and 2016," said house father. (nlu/sda)
