The upward level of global temperature has ended up being the most serious concerns for ecologists across the world and researchers have been observing these changing patterns of climate and temperature since years. In such a surprising discovery, a team of climate analysts from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has found out that, the current year has the third warmest January.
In simple word, 2017’s January is the third hottest in last 137 years. According to the recent report of NASA, 2017 January is recorded as the thirst most burning of the years. Two of the three warmest January have recorded in 2015 and 2016, while in succession, 2017 January has added to this line-up as the third participant. According to NASA’s report, January 2016 was 1.12 degrees Celsius hotter than the average temperature rate of January and current year’s January was 0.20 degrees Celsius cooler than last year.
As shown in the record, 2017 January was .92 degrees Celsius more tempered contrary to the average temperature level of January between 1951 and 1980. It is the third highest level of temperature in the period between 1951 and 2017. According to the detailed description, given by NASA’s scientists in the paper, the degree of temperature from 2000 to 2016 is considerably higher than the mean temperature of 1961 to 1990. While in January 2000, the temperature rate was 0.29, in 2011, the average rate was 0.42. Similarly, for the next four years, the level of temperature was 0.47, 0.51, 0.58, 0.76, and 0.77 respectively.
According to the study, most of the regions of North America and Siberia were extremely hotter in contrast to the period of 1951 to 1980. Moreover, most of the Asian regions were also comparatively warmer in this time base. The team of NASA from Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) has concluded this statement by analysing monthly the publicly accessible data-based, acquired by nearly 6,300 meteorological stations around the globe.Tags: climate change, NASA, temperature, temperature rise
