Bayerns #Grundwasser hat sich erwärmt
In den letzten Jahrzehnten haben die höheren Oberflächentemperaturen zu einer deutlichen Erwärmung des Grundwassers in #Bayern geführt, zeigen Daten von 35 Messstationen. In einer Tiefe von 20 m ist das Wasser im Mittel fast 1°C wärmer als noch vor 30 Jahren. Die erhöhten Temperaturen im Untergrund könnten sich problematisch auf unterirdische #Ökosysteme auswirken.

But rates did vary from country to country. https://science.sciencemag.org/content/365/6448/70.full
