Second Hottest Land & Sea Temperatures in Recorded History

Assessing the Global Climate in 2019,
NOAA reports near-record warm year for the globe,
NCEI, January 15, 2020.

MAIN POINTS

Land & Ocean Temps
Second Highest on Record
"...the average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.71°F (0.95°C) above the 20th century average. This was the second highest among all years in the 1880–2019 record and just 0.07°F (0.04°C) less than the record value set in 2016."

Trending Hot & Hotter
"...five warmest years have occurred since 2015; nine of the 10 warmest years have occurred since 2005. The year 1998 is the only 20th century year among the 10 warmest years on record."

2019 Global Land & Sea Temperature Departures from Average
NOAA 2019 Global Land & Sea Temperature Departures from Average, by NOAA.
NOAA.

Trending Upward
"The annual global land and ocean temperature has increased at an average rate of +0.13°F (+0.07°C) per decade since 1880; however, since 1981 the average rate of increase is more than twice that rate (+0.32°F / +0.18°C)."

The Difference
Pre to Post Industrial
"...the 2019 global land and ocean temperature was 2.07°F (1.15°C) above the average..." temperatures of pre-industrial Earth.

Land Temperatures
"The globally averaged land surface temperature for 2019 was 2.56°F (1.42°C) above the 20th century average. This value tied with 2015 as the second highest among all years in the 140-year record, behind 2016."

Sea Temperatures
"...also the second highest on record, with a temperature departure from average of 1.39°F (0.77°C) above the 20th century average. Only 2016 was warmer at 1.42°F (0.79°C)."

Ocean Records Everywhere
"Record high sea surface temperatures were observed across parts of all oceans, specifically, parts of the North and South Atlantic Ocean, the western Indian Ocean, and northern, western and southwestern Pacific Ocean. No ocean areas were record cold for the year."

The Surface of a Deep Disaster
"The upper ocean heat content, which addresses the amount of heat stored in the 0–2000 meters depth of the ocean, was the highest on record by a wide margin."

Second Smallest Arctic Sea Ice
"The monthly Arctic sea ice extent was record or near-record low from April through August, as well as October and November 2019. When averaging monthly data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center, the average annual sea ice extent in the Arctic was approximately 3.94 million square miles and the second smallest annual average sea ice extent in the 1979–2019 record."

Diminishing Surface of Arctic Disaster
"Only the year 2016 was smaller by about 10,000 square miles. The last four years (2016–19) have the smallest annual sea ice extent in the 41-year record."

Antarctic Sea Ice
"...the second smallest annually averaged value on record..."

Sea
Second Hottest
"...sea surface temperature was 1.39°F (0.77°C) above the 20th century average. This was also the second highest temperature departure from average for December in the 140-year record. The record-warm December took place in 2015..."

Arctic Sea Ice in December
"...the fifth smallest December sea ice extent since records began in 1979."

Antarctic Sea Ice in December
"...the fifth smallest December extent on record."

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

I NEED HELP!
If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:

 

 

I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
