Japanese Waters Hit Record High

Having just endured its warmest summer on record, the Japanese Meteorological Agency has said it has also recorded the warmest sea temperatures since it started gathering data 25 years ago.

According to the JMA, ocean surface temperatures surrounding Japan reached more than 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) in August. The average temperature was the hottest recorded since 1985, and was also a record 1.2 degrees Celsius above the average for the 1971-2000 period.

“When examining the earlier data also, I would say global warming is one of the factors behind the warmest recorded sea waters,” said an agency official.
