Oceans Heat Up on Carbon Emissions

Education Information

Oceans across the world heated up in 2019 raising the temperature to the highest ever recorded levels in history, according to data compiled by China's Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP). 
The warmth of the ocean was recorded upto a depth of 2,000 metres. The effect of ocean warming was felt in the form of extreme weather conditions, rise in sea level and threat to marine life. The study reported in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences said that ocean temperature was 0.075 celsius hotter than the historical average between 1981 and 2010. 
Apart from rising temperature, the ocean also absorbed 25 Zetta Joules of additional energy in 2019 in comparison with 2018 data. It may be the equivalent of every person on Earth running a hundred hair dryers or a hundred microwaves for the entire year, Michael Mann, director of Penn State's Earth System Sciences was quoted by AFP.
