Ocean Heatwaves Threatening to Collapse Marine Ecosystems

Incidences of ocean heatwaves increased by 54 per cent from 1925 to 2016, and their frequency has risen by nearly 35 per cent over the same period. As the Earth heats up, mean ocean temperatures have also been steadily rising. This latter change makes it easier for extreme marine heating events—similar to heatwaves. Compared to air, however, water can absorb far more heat and is better at retaining it, making marine heatwaves long-lived periods of extreme temperatures. Researchers suggest that climate-change-induced rises in global temperatures, which drove an increase in average ocean temperatures, is behind this increase in marine heatwaves.
