The Oceans - Record sea-surface temperatures around Australia in March 2015

Sea temperatures around Australia suggest global records set in 2014 may be broken this year, and next.
Temperatures for the entire Australian ocean region also set new highs for the month, the Bureau of Meteorology said.
Nathan Bindoff, a professor of physical oceanography at the University of Tasmania, said the March temperature reading for the Coral Sea "was a bit of a blinder".
"The global maps of sea-surface temperatures show a very similar picture of a rising trend," Professor Bindoff said.
He added that some areas off the Australian coast are warming at two or three times the worldwide average.
