The global ocean is warmed by the eyes

Oceans relentlessly hot. An international team of scientists from the U.S., UK, Germany and Japan proved that during the period from 1993 to 2008. water temperature has risen by 0.15 degrees Celsius, while the "warm layers" go to 700 m depth.

According to the researchers, the heating of the oceans in shallow water and rising water — is undeniable indicators Global Warming. The upper layers of the ocean to absorb the energy that is the result of human-induced greenhouse effect, and this leads to an increase in the temperature of sea water.

However, the system of collection of

Researchers have found a link fires in the forests of the Amazon to the heating of the oceans

Researchers have found a link fires in the forests of the Amazon to the heating of the oceans Scientists prove

UCLA scientists have developed a computer model which can be used to predict in a few months, and intensity of fires in the Amazon rain forest. Elevated surface temperatures Atlantic and Pacific oceans are the main signal coming fire.

The researchers argue that by heating the sea surface moist climate shifts north of the Amazon, causing a gradual decrease in humidity in the region and dry vegetation. This process takes place within a few months, and eventually ends up fires.

Secrets of the World Ocean

June 12, 2013. Scientists sometimes joke that the depth of the oceans are less well than the reverse side of the moon. This is quite a truthful statement, to date, according to various sources, the oceans studied only by 2-5%.

At the bottom of the oceans, there are real underwater river, or rather, the cases of so-called "cold seepage." It is referred to as sites where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbons seep through cracks at the bottom mixed with the sea water, and then slowly moving, like rivers. The word "cold" in the title of this phenomenon does not

How to turn into acid oceans

March 3. During the glacial period, 140,000 years ago, saved the inhabitants of the Mediterranean North Africa from extinction. Now the oceans himself in need of help. Humanity turns it into acid. Over the last 15 years the top 100 meters of the ocean become "sour" by 6%. From this salt evaporates, fish get drunk and lose control, and corals just die quietly.

Over the past 40 years, the ocean water in the tropics has become much saltier and closer to the poles — desalination, said researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA), Centre for Environment, Fisheries, and Aquaculture Science (UK) and the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (Canada) . These large-scale and relatively rapid changes suggest that recent climate change, including global warming, may alter

The water level in the oceans will continue to grow

The water level in the oceans will continue to grow to save the planet

Greenhouse gases are concentrated in the Earth's atmosphere, to further increase the temperature on the planet. According to the model of climate, considering the distant future of the Earth, with the current concentration of harmful gases by the year 3000, we achieved the rise of water in the oceans is 1.1 meters. Forecasts can be even more depressing, if not to take any measures aimed environmentally.

In the next thousand years, the water is able to rise up to 6.8 meters, if the events

Google Maps is preparing a virtual walk along the bottom of the oceans

Google Maps is preparing a virtual walk along the bottom of the oceans Facts

71% of our planet takes seven oceans. Each laid thousands of commercial and tourist destinations that people use every day. But, despite this, about 95% of the ocean floor remains unexplored. Google Maps project is going to correct this unfortunate misunderstanding.

As recently happened with the most interesting from the point of view of interest reserves and parks of America, Google Maps will develop a virtual tour of the most exciting parts of the sea floor, so that you can travel without getting off

Artificial icebergs — medics oceans and suppliers of green energy to save the planet

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch for many decades, is a living reminder of how human extravagance kills the planet. And every year the garbage chute near the California and Hawaii are increasing. A plastic particles become deadly pills ticking for marine organisms.

Many probably would want to take at a time and save the ocean from this disaster, it is very difficult and time consuming. And no one can guarantee that a couple of years in the same place appears a new Garbage Patch.

"Expo-2012" in Yeosu, South Korea Facts

From May 12 to August 12, 2012 in Yeosu, South Korea, held the International Exhibition "Expo-2012" on the theme "The Living Ocean and the coastal zone." The exhibition is the first of its kind to focus on the ocean and the islands and the international recognition of their role. The main message of the exhibition was the welfare of mankind, which is associated with the state of the oceans at risk. Sea level rise, loss of biodiversity, ocean acidification, and pollution — some of the many problems that threaten the seas and coasts. Restoring

Warming accelerates the water cycle on land and in the ocean

Warming accelerates the water cycle on land and in the ocean Scientists prove

In one study, a group of scientists from Australia and the U.S. shows that over the last 50 years of climate change have accelerated water cycle. Was based on data on the state of the seas and oceans from 1950 to 2000.

Scientists have determined that all of the main water reservoirs of the planet, regardless of geographical coordinates changed the salinity of water. This indicator is a sea change natural water cycle of rainfall and evaporation. Moreover, the study indicates that the process has run harder.
