Indicator

European sea surface temperature

Description

  • All European seas have warmed considerably since 1870, and the warming has been particularly rapid since the late 1970s. The multi-decadal rate of sea surface temperature rise during the satellite era (since 1979) has been between 0.21 °C per decade in the North Atlantic and 0.40 °C per decade in the Baltic Sea.
  • Globally averaged sea surface temperature is projected to continue to increase, although more slowly than atmospheric temperature.
