What A Warming Ocean Could Mean For Coastal Cities 28 August 2020

What A Warming Ocean Could Mean For Coastal Cities

Coastal sea levels are contributing to coastal flooding and erosion as global sea levels rise, partly due to the thermal expansion of seawater, which accelerates with increasing temperatures. Climate model simulations with increasing greenhouse gas emissions show that future sea-level variability will increase in many regions around the world

Ocean heatwaves dramatically shift habitats 5 August 2020

Ocean heatwaves dramatically shift habitats

“Thermal displacement” reflects how far species must go to follow preferred temperatures

Marine heatwaves across the world’s oceans can displace habitat for sea turtles, whales, and other marine life by 10s to thousands of kilometers. They dramatically shift these animals' preferred temperatures in a fraction of the time that climate change is expected to do the same, new research funded by NOAA's Climate Program Office shows.
