In the Arctic, the temperature rose to a record high

In the Svalbard archipelago recorded almost 22 degrees, although usually during this period the temperature does not exceed 8 degrees.





In the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, located 1300 kilometers from the North pole, scientists recorded the highest temperature in the history of meteorological observations. This is reported by AFP with reference to the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

“In the evening of July 25 (at 18 hours local time), Svalbard recorded a temperature of 21.7 degrees Celsius — this is 0.5 degrees more than the previous record, set back in 1979,” — said in a statement.

It is noted that the reason for the increase in temperature in the archipelago was a heatwave. Because of it, the temperature exceeded 21 degrees for two days before the record was set. Usually, during this period, it does not exceed 8 degrees.

According to the authors of the report, the Climate of Svalbard in 2100, the average temperature in the archipelago will increase by 7-10 degrees by the end of the century. The reason for this is the growth of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.





Norwegian meteorologists report that in 1971-2017, the temperature in Svalbard has already risen by 3-5 degrees, particularly in winter.

We will remind you that earlier at the South pole recorded a record warming. Over the past three decades, temperatures in the region have risen three times faster than the global average.

Earlier, the UN world meteorological organization predicted that in the next five years, the temperature on the planet will rise by 1.5.
