“Our ocean is changing,” NASA wrote in its post.

The greenhouse gases are impacting Earth’s water bodies, NASA’s scary visualisation of the oceans revealed. Taking to Instagram, NASA Climate Change shared a visualisation showing sea surface currents based on the Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II (ECCO2) model. In the caption, the space agency wrote that the gases produced by human activities are altering the ocean. “Our ocean is changing,” the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) wrote in its post. 

“With 70% of the planet covered by water, the seas are important drivers of Earth’s global climate. Yet, increasing greenhouse gases from human activities are altering the ocean before our eyes. NASA and its partners are on a mission to find out more,” NASA further posted.
