10 year global temperature compared to 1961-1990 average for locations around the world

Over the past decade, global temperatures have undergone substantial changes when compared to the 1961-1990 average. The Earth's climate has exhibited a discernible warming trend, with many locations worldwide experiencing temperature deviations from the historical baseline.

These variations in temperature patterns are indicative of the broader impact of climate change. Scientific analyses and reports consistently highlight the increasing global temperatures and associated climatic shifts. Many regions have witnessed temperatures surpassing the averages recorded during the 1961-1990 period, signaling a noteworthy departure from historical norms.

These temperature anomalies have manifested in diverse ways across different geographical locations. Some regions have encountered more frequent and intense heatwaves, contributing to challenges such as droughts, water scarcity, and adverse impacts on ecosystems. Concurrently, other areas have experienced alterations in precipitation patterns, leading to shifts in weather extremes, including more intense storms and altered seasonal behaviors.

The animation below shows the evolving distribution of 12-month average temperature anomalies across the surface the Earth from 1850 to present. Anomalies are measured with respect to 1951 to 1980 averages. The red vertical line shows the global mean, and matches the red trace in the upper-left corner. The data is from Berkeley Earth and the animation was prepared with Matlab.

The consequences of these temperature changes extend beyond meteorological considerations. They have far-reaching implications for ecosystems, agriculture, sea levels, and human societies. Rising temperatures contribute to the ongoing debate and urgency surrounding climate action, as nations grapple with mitigating the effects of climate change and adapting to the evolving environmental conditions.

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
