Changes in ocean worry scientists

Warned marine biologist Katja Filipart of flooding and severe storms and unemploymentof fishermen, because the most frightening things in the ocean, and pointed out that most of what is happening in the oceans change in life on Earth.

Filipart and within a team of scientists to compile the results of over a hundred research project funded by the European Union, as of the last few years on the draft Marine Research (Klammer).

Also warned the director of the Royal Dutch Institute of Marine Research Carlo Hyib the dangers that face the coastal cities, including cholera.

Came the warnings and other developments in the report of 200 pages on climate change, which looks in particular at the consequences for the oceans.

The report shows that the oceans are rapidly changing unprecedented, and with themelting of glaciers has become the sea level and temperature Tertfan faster than everbefore.

Climate change
The researchers say "We can no longer stop climate change, and we take this way a long time ago." And the consequences of climate change, subject to review only in the long run, perhaps for decades or even centuries.

In just the past quarter century the average ocean temperature 10 times faster than in the past century.

And the world is expected to increase the average temperature two degrees Celsius on the surface of the water by the end of the twentieth century and the atheist. Will see the North Sea rose by 1.7 degrees, while the Baltic Sea will rise in temperature of 2 to 4degrees.

And feel some of the most dangerous types of bacteria comfortable in the warm water, the researchers found that the high temperature helps the spread of a particular type of bacteria strains that cause cholera also.

Hyib said that this means a potential threat to the coast, health costs may rise if the human eating contaminated seafood, according to the report.

Go fishThe high temperature of the sea will also have other consequences, many species of fish will move towards the north, where the water is colder.

Filipart says that the south is losing some of the commercial fisheries such as cod, cod are facing risk of extinction even in the Baltic Sea.

The migration of fish will not spoil the ecosystem, but also fisheries in southern Europe will have to deal with small amounts of fish, while the north such as Greenland and Iceland and Norway should be bracing themselves for many, and the fishermen cope with new circumstances.

And create a melting mountain snow blocks and a kind of uncertainty, while the sea level rose an average of 1.8 millimeter per year over the past century, it grew more dangerous, since 1993, an annual increase of about 3.3 millimeters.

According to the report, "any increase from 80 to 200 centimeters would sweep the entire nations."

The cities like Hamburg in Germany, although not directly on the ocean, they can be damaged by severe floods across the river Elbe or heavy rains, which are becoming more likely for North Germany, France, Denmark, England and South East Europe.

Filipart says that this is not just scenarios for the near future, all this is happening long ago.

Hyib say "is not all bad Things are changing, but we need to recognize these changes and prepare for them," he said, "We need to continue to monitor the oceans."
