    Title : World's oceans are hotter than ever
    By Univ. of Auckland's Science and technology, Faculty of Science, Environment , Jan 2022

    [Temperatures are rising in all oceans, reports Dr Kevin Trenberth, a climate-change expert affiliated with the Faculty of Science.

    The world's oceans are hotter than ever, continuing their record-breaking temperature streak for the third straight year...]

    Title : Oceans were the hottest ever recorded in 2022, analysis shows

    [The world’s oceans were the hottest ever recorded in 2022, demonstrating the profound and pervasive changes that human-caused emissions have made to the planet’s climate.

    More than 90% of the excess heat trapped by greenhouse gas emissions is absorbed in the oceans. The records, starting in 1958, show an inexorable rise in ocean temperature, with an acceleration in warming after 1990.

    Sea surface temperatures are a major influence on the world’s weather. Hotter oceans help supercharge extreme weather, leading to more intense hurricanes and typhoons and more moisture in the air, which brings more intense rains and flooding. Warmer water also expands, pushing up sea levels and endangering coastal cities...]

    Title : Scientists sound alarm as ocean temperatures hit new record
    By Kelly Macnamara (AFP) , January 11, 2023

    [...The study, by researchers in China, the US, Italy and New Zealand, said that 2022 was "the hottest year ever recorded in the world's oceans"...

    Until we reach net zero emissions, that heating will continue, and we'll continue to break ocean heat content records, as we did this year...

    "Some places are experiencing more droughts, which lead to an increased risk of wildfires, and other places are experiencing massive floods from heavy rainfall, often supported by increased evaporation from warm oceans," said co-author Kevin Trenberth, of the US National Center for Atmospheric Research and the University of Auckland.]
