Another warming-Maine map

| No Comments
Feeling the chill of the approaching Northeaster? This map will warm your core. It highlights the areas in our neighborhood that are among the fastest warming in the global ocean over the past ten years. You can see that parts of the Gulf of Maine are among the fastest 0.01% of the ocean in terms of rate of warming.

To put things in context, here are the warming and cooling regions throughout the global ocean. Red areas have warmed over the ten year period, blue areas have cooled.

So if you're chilled to the bone this winter, go for a dip. Just make sure you swim for at least a decade so that you experience the climate signal.
