New Antarctic temperature record ice melting fast. Climate change is reaching alarming levels due to environmental pollution. Ice in the world’s two coldest polar regions is melting at an alarming rate. However, Antarctica and the Arctic region of the North and South Poles play the most important role in maintaining a normal climate.
Recent studies on these ice-covered places are giving all the exciting information. Antarctica’s new temperature has been recorded above 18 degrees Celsius. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has confirmed the temperature. On March 24, 2015, the same meteorological office set the temperature in Antarctica at 17.5 degrees Celsius. That was the highest before.
This information was provided by the Argentine Esperanza Research Institute in February last year. The same delegation recorded a temperature of more than 20 degrees Celsius in 2020 on the island of Seymour, a short distance from the mainland of Antarctica.
No organization has the initiative to protect any area covered with ice from direct sunlight. Temperatures in mainland Antarctica are also rising at an alarming rate.
The temperature here has risen by 3 degrees Celsius in the last 50 years. The British Antarctic Survey says temperatures in the region have not yet reached 20 degrees Celsius, but will soon. WMO research says temperatures on the continent will rise above 20 degrees Celsius in the next decade. Earlier, in 1982, the maximum temperature recorded on the island of Sign in Antarctica was above 19 degrees Celsius.
Antarctica is the coldest place on earth with an area of 14 million square kilometers. This area is twice the size of the continent of Australia. The continent has 26.5 million cubic kilometers of ice. Temperatures in different parts of the country range from minus 10 to minus 60 degrees Celsius.
Temperatures around minus 90 degrees Celsius have also been found somewhere in Antarctica from the satellite. In 1983, Russia’s Vostok station recorded the lowest temperature in Antarctica at minus 89 degrees Celsius.
Meteorologists say the Earth’s temperature has risen by an average of 1 degree Celsius since the 19th century. Drought has increased in different parts of the world, sea waves have become stronger. The storm has formed. But Antarctica’s air temperature has more than doubled, they said.
They fear that the amount of ice that will melt in the West Antarctic and Greenland due to an average temperature rise of 2 degrees Celsius in this part of the world could raise sea levels. The danger will increase. Many coastal areas will be flooded.
