The study published in Natural Communications decides that global warming is causing significant changes in the numbers of phytoplankton, a aquatic plant, which will affect the color of the seas.
The results show that the areas are blue; becoming more blue, showing the reduction in phytoplankton levels – and general life -, and those greener even more green, Many of the phytoplankton species appear.
The color of the ocean depends on how the rays of the sun are hanging; dealing with water parts. Water molecules contain all sunlight, except the blue part of the spectrum, which is a means that areas of the ocean with less life are seen as blue.
Compared to that, phytoplankton contains chlorophyll, which is a. including more green and greener, so the rich areas of algae are rich in green.
Researchers have developed a universal module that symbolizes the growth and interaction of different phytoplankton species, and how they change as the temperature increases.
They also found the way in which phytoplankton contains and includes; show light and how it affects the color of the seas, and including the changing change of climate change.
The group of researchers have been developing a computer model that has been used to predict changes in phytoplankton levels when temperatures are rising and water is enclosed.
In addition, they have added a novelty element: the ability to estimate the lighting waves that the ocean has to do; including and appearing, depending on the types of organic in the region; there.
Depending on this model, at the end of the century, the appearance of the plan will change. Stephanie Dutkiewicz, project director of research, & # 39; expecting changes between phytoplankton communities to eliminate the food nets they are maintaining, and Think of a problem "which could be extremely bad".
However, Dutkiewicz agrees that it is difficult to decide whether these changes are the result of natural climate change or chlorophyll variation. "An event like El Niño no La Niña would cause a change in chlorophyll as the level of well-being of the system changes," he says.
