Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications

Small book cover: Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications

Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 52

Description:
Improving observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat, even during the recent solar minimum. The inferred planetary energy imbalance provides fundamental verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in driving global climate change.
