Scientists in Antarctica recorded a new record temperature 20.75 degrees Celsius. According to experts, the figure for the first time, overcame the 20-degree barrier on the continent in the entire history of observations. About it reported in a press release on Phys.org.
At the same time, the researchers emphasize that the temperature record does not say anything about trends in climate, as is the result of a single measurement, not long term data collection. However, before such a high temperature has never been reported in Antarctica.
The record was recorded on the island of Seymour, located at the Northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. The Seymour is the Argentine base Marambio, which conducted research on the impact of climate change on permafrost in the region.
Earlier it was reported that in February 2020 in Antarctica, the temperature rose to 18.3 degrees Celsius, a record since 1961.
