Вчені розповіли, чому Тихий океан стає холоднішим

Scientists from the Oceanographic Institute woods hole and Harvard University for a long time gathering information from reputable scientific sources and organizations previously engaged in studying the temperature changes of the waters of the Pacific ocean, informs Rus.Media.

The experts also conducted their study, which helped them to discover that the bottom of the Pacific ocean in recent years continued to cool. For this purpose was created a special computer model of the water circulation of the ocean.

It turned out that during the 20th century at depths of 1.8-2.6 km there have been recent changes. Accurate temperature cold unknown. Perhaps the figures are from 0.02 to 0.08°C.

For the first time the Pacific ocean was much colder times of the little ice age. Scientists believe that at the moment the cooling of the ocean is a residual phenomenon of the little ice age, because the other explanation they can not find. Otherwise, many living organisms in the ocean are threatened with extinction or serious mutations in order to adapt to the new conditions of life.
