Imagine every second that passes, mankind drops five atomic bombs (equivalent to the one that dropped on Hiroshima), the temperature rises, everything turns upside down and you try to imagine that this is still going on. … A study published Monday this week shows that 2019 records the highest sea temperature level ever recorded in history and how records of temperature have always been established over the years. recently.
An international team of 14 scientists from different countries conducted data analysis from the 1950s on temperatures from the surface of the ocean to a depth of 2,000 meters. The chart shows that the sea is clearly warming, but peaked within the past decade. The trend of constantly rising temperatures makes scientists believe that people more specifically, climate change is responsible.
During the period from 1955 to 1986, temperatures increased steadily, but showed signs of faster acceleration in the past 10 years. Considering the 1987-2019 milestone compared to the previous period, the ocean was 450% warmer. From 1981-2010 compared to 2019, the sea temperature was 0.075ºC higher.
Lijing Cheng, who led the research team, said that to achieve such a temperature change, the ocean has actually received up to 228 trillion Jun. By comparison, the atomic bomb that was dropped on the city of Hiroshima (Japan) exploded with an energy of approximately 63 trillion Jun. Cheng estimates that the amount of heat the oceans around the world have received over the past 25 years is equivalent to 3.6 billion atomic bomb explosions in Hiroshima. This rate is more specific, like throwing nearly four atomic bombs into the sea every second and with increasing warming, this number is even higher and is currently possible. at 5-6 fruits per second.
The ocean has long been viewed as a measure of the impact of climate change on mankind’s habitat. Occupying nearly three-quarters of the Earth’s surface, the ocean plays a very important role in absorbing most of the heat. Scientists say that since 1970, more than 90% of the planet’s excess heat has been absorbed by the ocean. Humans mainly live on land, so what effect does the ocean have on warming? Many of you must be thinking that. You probably know that typhoons are getting stronger and stronger each year. Every time a hurricane forms and sweeps across an area, leaving only death and pain.
Storms are often formed in oceans in tropical regions, with winds of at least 119 km / h. Once inland, storms can become mass murderers, destroying everything they pass through. Warm sea water makes the storm stronger by providing more heat, in other words, the storm will have more energy. To make it easy to imagine, just imagine when you just walked out of the bathroom, you felt cold because the water from the skin evaporated, while carrying some heat. Heat leaves your body but does not disappear, but is added to the air.
The same thing happens with storms. The fuel that strengthens storms is the great amount of heat from the ocean, which enters the air and encounters strong winds blowing on the surface. In addition, rising temperatures also mean that seawater is becoming less and less oxygenated and acidic, thus threatening the nutrition of marine life. In addition, the vegetarian lines are also changing, greatly affecting the weather and causing species not to adapt. Scientists think the damage the ocean is suffering is irreversible and the only way at the moment is to prevent things from getting worse.
