Baltika will warm by 2-4 degrees

Increase in sea levels and intensified wind erosion have led to 15% of European coasts. As the ice melts in the European seas unpredictable changes occur as the water temperature increases and begins the migration of marine animals, the report says the Center for Climate Change and the ecosystem of the seas of Europe (CLAMER). We predict that by the end of the XXI century, the average water temperature in the Baltic Sea will increase by 2-4 degrees Celsius warmer in the North Sea 1.7 degrees and the water in the Bay of Biscay add 1.5 degrees,” – said project leader Carlo Heyp.
Over the past 25 years, the temperature in the seas gradually increased as the melting of ice in the Arctic Ocean, the report said. Warming over the past 25 years is 10 times faster than the average during the XX century.
“The changes are clearly visible and occur much faster than we expected,” – says Heyp.
In early May, chairman of the Society for the Protection of Arctic Flora and Fauna Ævar Petersen said that global warming could lead to radical changes in the nature of the Arctic tundra. In connection with the change of climate the upper limit of forest growth in the region will move to 500 kilometers to the north. In addition, according to scientific estimates, climate change could lead to a greater number of insect pests and fires in the forests.
