New Research finds huge buildup of heat in oceans


New research reveals that we do not have as much time as we previously though we had. The study published in Nature lays out the evidence for Earth’s oceans soaking up about 60% more heat that had been previously estimated. Let’s take a look. Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and … Read more

Climate Change – The Oceans are heating up

ocean warming

A new paper has been published by the Chinese International Center for Climate and Environment Sciences (That’s part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences). Within it they present their analysis of data gathered from all around the earth’s oceans and demonstrate a very clear ongoing ocean warming trend. There is a short clip that visualises the data … … Read more

Climate Change might be worse than previously thought

ocean heat

There is a new paper with a rather obscure sounding title that appears to have some serious implications regarding ocean heat over the past 100 million years. Let’s take this a step at a time. The paper entitled “Burial-induced oxygen-isotope re-equilibration of fossil foraminifera explains ocean paleotemperature paradoxes” has been published within Nature Communications. What … Read more

Earth’s oceans are warming 13% faster than previously thought, and accelerating

A new paper has been published within Science Advances that lays out new estimates of the heat content within the worlds oceans. It is entitled “Improved estimates of ocean heat content from 1960 to 2015“. Background Now before we get into it, let’s cover the basics. We have more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, and … Read more
