More then 90% of heat cause by human is absorbed by ocean, temperatures have reached record high in 2020

 More then 90% of heat cause by human is absorbed by ocean, temperatures have reached record high in 2020.

90% of heat caused by human absorbed by ocean

A new study by researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) found that temperatures in the upper reaches of 2,000 meters of ocean reached record highs in 2020. 

The study further states that just over 90 percent of the excess heat is absorbed by the ocean due to human-caused climate change. 

According to the study authors, ocean heat is a valuable indicator of climate change because it does not fluctuate as much on the surface of the Earth, which may vary in response to weather and natural climate variations.

The study authors stated that the rise in sea temperature can also have many social effects. 

They add that the uneven vertical heat of the ocean also makes it more stratified, which in turn prevents ocean mixing and the distribution of dissolved oxygen and nutrients, affecting marine ecosystems and fisheries.

Talking about it, study co-author Kevin Tranberth revealed that ocean heat has exacerbated many important climate-related events in recent history and led to a record number of billion-dollar disasters in the US in 2020 Has also contributed.

Global ocean heat content change in the upper 2000m

For the study, the team, led by Lijing Cheng of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, used two different ocean heat datasets. 

One was from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, and one was from the National Centers for Environmental Information, which is a part of the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.

The authors of the study found that the two datasets obtained slightly different values ​​for globally integrated ocean heat in 2020 and even found that 2020 was the warmest year on record.

Co-author John Fasulo said the study definitely showed him that the ocean is warming and has been for decades.

The results of the study have been published in the journal Advance in Atmospheric Science.
