Abnormal warming recorded at both Earth poles

Abnormal warming recorded at both Earth poles

March 24, 2022

Scientists cannot say exactly what the phenomenon is connected with.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. At both poles of the planet, scientists at the US National Snow and Ice Data Center simultaneously recorded anomalous temperature records.

At the Franco-Italian station Concordia in Antarctica, which is located at an altitude of 3234 meters, the trackers showed on March 18 only minus 12.2 degrees. This is 40 degrees above the average temperature and an absolute record for the station in the entire history of observations.

According to Izvestia, temperatures are also rising in the Arctic. At the Vostok station, scientists recorded a temperature of minus 17.7 degrees, which is almost 15 degrees higher than the maximum temperature that was previously observed here in March.

Scientists do not yet understand what caused this. There are different seasons at the poles now: the North and South Poles should not melt at the same time. If such changes continue, this will become a serious cause for concern.

Earlier it became known that since the beginning of the century, the Arctic lost a third of sea ice, and near the North Pole, scientists discovered octopuses and large cod. We also reported that in forty years Norilsk could become a city of rains.
