Ocean temperatures reach record high in the Northeast
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Tuesday that the average sea surface temperature for the Northeast continental shelf ecosystem, from North Carolina to Maine, was a little over 50.5 degrees for the first half of 2012. The previous record high for the first six months of a year was set in 1951, the Associated Press reports.
Scientist Kevin Friedland of the fisheries science center says it’s unclear if the temperature rise will continue for the long term or is a short-term anomaly.
