NASA's new research shows warming in the sea that could increase the extreme frequency of the storm – Xinhua



LOS ANGELES, January 29 (Xinhua) – A recent study by NASA shows that the warming of tropical oceans caused by climate change is endless with the proliferation of extreme storm storms.

The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), a research team led by Hartmut Aumann, collects data from the NASA Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument for more than 15 years, in accordance with tropical ocean seals to determine the average temperature and temperature of the sea. the onset of severe storms.

When the extremities of the storms created a storm of about 3 millimeters per hour with a surface area of ​​25 km, the sea surface temperature was higher than 28 degrees Celsius, the release of JPL on Tuesday.

The group also found that 21 percent more storms have risen to the ocean surface that make up Celsius at each level.

Aumann said that severe storms will intensify in a warmer environment. Temperatures are usually the hottest annual seasons.

"Our data calculate how much quantitative estimates are, at least, for tropical oceans," said Aumann.

Today's climate model project, with stable carbon dioxide stabilization in the atmosphere, is 1% annually, the tropical ocean temperature may have 2.7 degrees in the end of the century, the group said.

If this happens, the heavy storm will be around 60%. According to the study.

"Quantify our results and give more visual significance to the effects of ocean warming anticipated," said Aumann. "More storms mean more floods, more structural damage, more crop damage, etc., unless measures are taken to alleviate measures."
