For the past 100 years, oceans have been warming up at an average speed of 0.13 °C per decade. Some places are even 3 °C warmer than before. Warming oceans impact global warming trend through a chain of interlinked processes, posing a threat to marine life and humans.

Warming waters trigger sea ice melting, causing next consequences (less reflecting surface and additional CO2 release).
