According to the study, hurricanes in the southeast Atlantic have been increasing over the past 90 years, and there seems to be more hurricanes in “warm years,” where water surface temperatures are higher than normal.
Sea surface temperatures have risen between half a degree and a degree Fahrenheit over the past 100 years, according to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
“We show that there is a difference in frequency of cyclones between cold and warm years, and that the effect is strongest for the larger cyclones and hurricanes,” according to the Copenhagen study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
