Climate Change In Deep Oceans Could Be 7X Faster By Middle Of Century

“Uneven heating could have major impact on marine wildlife, as species that rely on each other for survival are forced to move”

“Rates of climate change in the world’s ocean depths could be seven times higher than current levels by the second half of this century even if emissions of greenhouse gases were cut dramatically, according to new research.

Different global heating at different depths could have major impacts on ocean wildlife, causing disconnects as species that rely on each other for survival are forced to move.

In the new research, scientists looked at a measure called climate velocity – the speed at which species would need to move to stay within their preferred temperature range as different ocean layers warm.”
