"An australian study shows that the world's oceans has become stormigare, reports Vetenskapsradion."
"Researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia has come to the conclusion that wave height and wind speed at sea has increased in the past 33 years. The largest increase has been in the area around Antarctica, where extremvindarna has increased by 1.5 metres per second, or eight per cent during this period."
"the Study published in the journal Science, consistent with united nations estimates that a warmer climate brings more extreme weather. And strong winds out at sea can bring consequences."
"– Waves is a major problem for shipping, and even then the waves towards the shore which destroy various structures, " says Göran Broström, professor at the department of marine studies, university of Gothenburg to the radio."
"Broström also says that more research is needed to investigate if the changes are due to climate change or if it is about natural cycles, since the study is based on a relatively short period of time."
