Global warming is hiding in the depths of the ocean

According to studies by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, USA (NCAR), the oceans of our planet can absorb enough heat to equalize the rate of global warming for 10 years, although the long-term warming trend is preserved.

The study, based on computer models of global climate, points to the fact that the layers of the ocean at depths below 300 m may hide heat. It may shed light on the mystery of the "missing" heat in the last ten years — when was observed gradual increase in the temperature of the planet. The fact that the
