Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by J. Hansen, M. Sato, P. Kharecha, K. von Schuckmann
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 52
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.

The oceans are in interactive contact with the atmosphere, biosphere and lithosphere and virtually all elements pass through the ocean. In this class we learn about the first-order processes that take place within the sea and affect its chemistry.
