Ocean heatwaves have risen by more than 50% since 1925

Oceanic heatwaves have increased by 54 percent since 1925, posing a major threat to aquatic ecosystems. In a study published in the journal Nature Communications, researchers outline the cause and effects of underwater heatwaves and their future impact on the world's oceans. "These trends can largely be explained by increases in mean ocean temperatures, suggesting that we can expect further increases in marine heatwave days under continued global warming," write the researchers. As higher...
