Temperature deviation in Switzerland (1864 - 2018)

The temperature deviation in Switzerland from 1864 to 2018 shows a clear trend of increasing temperatures, consistent with global climate change patterns. This period saw significant variations in temperature, with some years experiencing higher deviations from the long-term average than others.

2018 was the warmest year on record.  The visualization below was created using data from the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss.
Temperature deviation in Switzerland (1864 - 2018)

Overall, the data indicates a warming trend, with temperatures generally deviating more from the average in recent years compared to earlier in the dataset. This trend is in line with global climate change patterns and is consistent with observations in many other parts of the world.

The increasing temperature deviations in Switzerland over this period are significant as they have implications for the country's environment, including its glaciers, ecosystems, and water resources. Understanding these changes is crucial for adapting to and mitigating the effects of climate change in Switzerland and beyond.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Moose population in North America

The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moose population was measured at around one million animals. The most abundant moose population (about 700,000) lives in Canada. About 300 000 moose remains in nineteen U.S. states Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. The largest moose specimens are found in Alaska 200 thousand moose. Below the map shows the size of US states scaled by the moose population.     Via www.vividmaps.com
