The oceans became deeper – the scientists

Мировой океан стал глубже - ученые

The level of the World ocean is considered one of the most important indicators of climate change on the planet.

Over the past 25 years, Global sea level rose by 7.7 refer To the relevant conclusions of an international team of scientists based on satellite data, according to Earth System Science Data.

The increase comes from an average rate of 3.1 mm per year and accelerating at 0.1 mm annually. The authors of the study tried to assess the contribution of different circumstances in the observed pattern. According to their calculations, the thermal expansion of water while playing a leading role – 42%. The share of melting sea ice and glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica, have 21%, 15% and 8% respectively.

Not yet understand the role of water flow into the ocean via rivers, scientists have noted that the uncertainty here is too great to draw any conclusions.

The level of the World ocean is considered one of the most important indicators of climate change on the planet. The other is the ocean temperature and absorption of heat, the concentration of greenhouse gases, the acidity of ocean waters, status of glaciers and sea ice.

Earlier, a group of scientists from Australia and the United States analyzed the state of oceans and estimate the number of unaffected human areas.
