NASA researchers found that the deepest part of Earth’s oceans have not been significantly affected by the upper ocean’s temperature increases, according to a recent release from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  The scientists used a blend of satellite monitoring and data from floating temperature probes to establish their findings.

The researchers also concluded that deep sea warming didn’t add substantially to sea rise levels. They concluded that the sea level is still rising, but more information is needed to understand a recent decline in global warming.
