The surface of the oceans would continue to cool, if not the beginning of the industrial revolution, which eventually led to global warming. Some of the minimum temperatures were recorded between the 16th and 18th centuries - the period known as the "Little Ice Age." In order to analyze trends, the team of scientists grouped data on temperature changes over 200 years of the 57 studies that took place before, and came to the conclusion that a significant volcanic activity actually reduces the temperature of the ocean surface. Only human activity has changed the trend. Note, for all the world's oceans average temperature of surface water is 17.54 degrees. In the northern hemisphere - about 3 degrees higher than in the south. This is due to the fact that water area, located north of the equator absorb approximately 40% more heat than water southern latitudes. Significant differences exist in the average temperatures of individual oceans. Researchers have shown that the oceans can capture and absorb more heat than the atmosphere for extended periods of time, which reduces the global temperature changes in the short term. "We analyzed how to change the temperature on the basis of several measurements - in particular, marine sediments in cold and tropical areas. The results were compared with those obtained on the ground - tree rings and ice cores. Together they proved a tendency to decrease in temperature, "- said one of the researchers Graham Mortin.
