Global warming shown in data from 19th century expedition
The HMS Challenger set sail during 1872 on the world's first scientific mission to explore life beneath the surface of the oceans. As part of their research, the crew of Challenger lowered thermometers hundreds of feet beneath the ocean's surface. Examination of data from that four-year-long scientific mission lends evidence supporting a rise in global sea temperatures since that time.
