What is happening with the Adriatic sea? The water temperature is the highest in the last 100 years (PHOTO) (VIDEO)

From 2008 to 2015, the average temperature of the Adriatic surface layer increased by 1.25 degrees, and this trend of accelerated warming is not stopping

Whoever took a bath in the Adriatic sea these days, and he also did so in the previous years at the same time, he was probably surprised because the water temperature was very pleasant. According to the estimates of experts. It is the warmest in the previous 100 years.

The surface temperatures of the sea are currently three to four degrees Celsius higher compared to the first half of January, it so the water in Split and Pula was 26 degrees, Index.hr reports.

From 2008 to 2015, the average temperature of the Adriatic surface layer increased by 1.25 degrees, and this trend of accelerated warming is not stopping. 

Ivica Vilibic from Split Laboratory for physics of the sea of the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries said that the intensive heating of the sea is the consequence of extremely high temperatures of the air which are continually high for the past two months, since the mid-April.

- In addition, there were no strong storms, which cause the entry of colder sea from deeper levels and mixing of the sea near our coast. We can say that the temperatures in this part of the year are the highest in the previous 100 years - Vilibic said.

As he explained, the shallow seas and Adriatic is one of them, can feel the climatic changes faster, unlike the ocean, which is much slower in comparison to the coastal seas.

However, when deeper layers of the ocean become warmer, which requires tens and even hundreds of years, the slowness of the ocean doesn't allow it to return to the original state, even when a man starts behaving rationally.

He said that the rise in temperature works only to some species in the sea, while others don't like it, like shrimps. 

- Some of the invasive species will settle in the Adriatic, while some other new species will probably migrate occasionally to the Adriatic. In addition, increased warming is likely to increase the sea level - Vilibic said.

He predicts that the Adriatic will become warmer and saltier.

- Currents will be weaker, the oxygen flow to deeper layers will be weaker, which will have a significant impact on the living world at the bottom of the sea, the air temperature will be higher, as well as the frequency of heat waves, and the extremes extreme heat, torrential waters, flooded areas, will be more frequent. That will have an impact on the living world, on a man and his activities - Vilibic concluded.
