Temperatures hot high records

Written by 

Global temperature records are pulled officially by the Goddard Institute of NASA since 1880 and then, scientists have been studying the warming patterns of the Earth.

The recent NASA study the surface temperature shows that temperatures last April are the hottest face those recorded in the same month in previous years and with a very significant difference.
The record set last month exceeded the former by 0.24 ° C, recorded in 2010, which was 0.87 ° C above the average basis for April.
The same can be said of May 2016 which was the hottest ever measured, at the global level, beating the previous record effulgent form, dated 2014. The global average temperature last month was higher than the average 0,93oC May recorded between 1951 and 1980, according to data released by the North American space agency.

According to the Climate Observatory, May is the eighth consecutive month to hit global temperature record, which puts 2016 in almost track to be the hottest year of all history since measurements with thermometers began in 1880.
And this at a time when the warmer months of the year, the summer in the northern hemisphere, have not yet arrived. That is, hardly 2016 will be warmer than 2015, which in turn smashed all previous records.

The temperature deviation average of the second quarter of 2016 was 1,1oC compared to the average from 1951 to 1980 for the same period. As this average is now about 0,3oC higher than the pre-industrial period, probably we are experiencing this year, a global warming near 1,5oC.
The responsibility of high temperatures is partly attributed to El Niño, which caused an oceanic hot band in the Equatorial Pacific, which influences global temperatures of air and earth. However, the sense heat in April and May is also influenced by the rapid and accelerated global warming that the planet has been suffering.
