Climate change not only affects air temperatures, but it affects the ocean too. Marine heatwaves are happening more frequently and are lasting longer. “A study published yesterday in Nature Communications suggests that there’s been a 54 percent increase in the number of annual ‘marine heatwave days’ since the 1920s. Overall, heat waves are lasting about 17 percent longer than before, and their frequency has increased by about a third.”
