The rising ocean temperature seems to cause a period of extreme storms

According to a study by the US National Aviation and Space Authority (NASA), ocean temperature increases in the coming decades could be reflected in unfavorable meteorological conditions at the end of the 20th century.

Climate data analysis has been carried out over the past 15 years to detect a link between tropical ocean temperature rise and violent storms. This is the first discovery that appreciates the increased frequency of the storm due to water warming.

About 60 percent more extreme storms

In the event of an extraordinary storm, according to the NASA team from Pasadena (California), there are also storms with at least 30 milliliters of rainfall in a 16-mile (25-kilometer) area. The results of the study show that such storms occur when the sea level exceeds 28 ° C. Each additional temperature increase of 1.8 degrees will increase the storm by 21%.

"It makes sense to make the number of storms in hot climates. Today's storms usually occur during the warmer seasons.

Current climate models show that to warm water in the oceans up to almost 5 degrees Celsius could happen in the late 1900s. The frequency of extraordinary storms could be 60% higher than today.

"Our results quantify the effects of anticipated ocean warming and visually point to its effects. More storms mean more floods, more mechanical damage, more farm damage, etc."

How does global warming change the oceans?

Climate change will also be described as the oceans will look like. Water will get a more natural nature, resulting in higher greenhouse gas emissions.

It is believed that a warmer climate can increase ocean levels and completely eliminate corals on rocks. The risk is also changing the direction of the ocean stream and the loss of light in the water.
