  • OAFlux NASA MEaSUREs satellite-derived wind data records show that surface winds over the 10 marginal and enclosed seas along the Eurasian continent (including the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal, the South China Sea, the East China Sea, and the Sea of Japan) have rapidly strengthened in the 1990s but remained little changed or slightly weakened since 2000. Link to the study.

  • OAFlux NASA MEaSUREs satellite-derived temperature data records show that, since the late 1980s, near-surface air temperatures have increased at a rate of 0.15 ± 0.03 °C per decade  and sea surface temperatures at a similar rate of 0.14 ± 0.03 °C per decade. Both rates of increase are statistically significant at the 90% confidence interval. Link to the study.
