Sea Surface Temperature Change
As climate change progresses, global sea surface water temperatures are projected to follow overall global warming trends. Since tropical storms gain energy from warm waters to form and intensify, warming sea surface temperatures will drive changes in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
The UN SDGs help to guide analysis and policy to achieve a safer, more equal world by 2030. Sea surface temperature change relates directly to SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 14 (Life Below Water). For more information on the SDGs, visit https://sdgs.un.org/goals.
