Measurement in the deep sea: oceans are heating up faster

Oceans heating up faster than expected, set record in 2018

Ocean heat content is not bothered much by weather fluctuations that do, however, affect the surface temperatures, and it is somewhat affected by El Niño events.

Researchers said this showed that, contrary to the claims of some sceptics, the world was warming at a...

The new study analyzed earlier published information and data compiled by Argo, an global system of almost 4,000 floats that measures temperature and saline levels in the upper parts of the world's oceans. Hausfather says that 2018 will be the warmest year on record for the oceans, and notes that 2017 and 2016 were the warmest years on record previously.

Winter Storm Warning for southwest Virginia
However, another band of snow will pass through later tonight with another couple inches of accumulation possible. If the storm swings further north than expected it could include rain and sleet mixed with the snow.


When we see the effects of climate change around us, we mostly think about increasing temperatures in the atmosphere. That would mean a sea level rise of 30 centimeters or about a foot in addition to the rise in sea levels caused by melting of glaciers and ice sheets. An important factor for the more accurate Numbers a Maritime surveillance fleet with the name of Argo, which includes nearly 4000 floating robot. 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, said the study. This Trend has far-reaching consequences for fish or other organisms in the already oxygen-poor marine regions, for example, because in particular large fish in oxygen are not able to survive poor areas.

Prior to Argo, ocean temperature data was sparse at best, relying on devices called expendable bathythermographs that sank to the depths only once, transmitting data until settling into watery graves.

The seas are a critical marker of climate change because an estimated 93 percent of the excess solar energy trapped by greenhouse gases accumulates there. The scientists reached that conclusion thanks to about 4,000 buoys deployed in the oceans since 2000 that have measured more ocean warming since 1971 than the United Nations latest estimates, from 2013, revealed.

'For example, even if we meet the target of Paris Agreement (to limit climate change), ocean will continue warming and sea level will continue rise.

A separate study on Monday, by the European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Service, said 2018 was the fourth warmest year for global surface temperatures in records dating back to the 19th century. It has also contributed to increases in rainfall intensity and stronger, longer-lasting storms, such as Harvey in 2017 and Florence in 2018.

"If the ocean wasn't absorbing as much heat, the surface of the land would heat up much faster than it is right now", Malin Pinsky, an associate professor in the department of ecology, evolution and natural resources at Rutgers University, told The New York Times.
