Warns that the amount of heat trapped on Earth has doubled since 2005 NASA. Announced by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) researchers New study Earlier this week, “Earth’s energy imbalance nearly doubled in 14 years from 2005 to 2019”.
Energy imbalance is the amount of heat that the earth absorbs from the sun, and the amount of “thermal infrared radiation” that the earth reflects back into space. Norman Loeb, lead author of the study and a researcher at NASA, said: “The level of growth is unprecedented.” Appointed by researchers Human activities As one of the main catalysts.
According to the study, Emission gas Preventing heat, ice and ice from melting in the atmosphere, increasing water vapor in the atmosphere and escaping radiation from human activities. The study suggests that the “natural” route from the cold phase to the warm phase of the Pacific Ocean probably played an important role.
To reach their conclusions, the researchers used this series Satellites And the ocean floating network, whose data they compared. “The two independent ways of seeing changes in the Earth’s energy imbalance are very, very convergent, and they both show this very important trend, which gives us great confidence that what we are seeing is a real phenomenon and not great. Instrumental art,” Trends we found in a way. They are terrible, “he warned.
