Global Warming: Scientists are Floored by What’s Happening in the Arctic

NASA data shows that the top of the world was particularly affected by record-breaking January temperatures

New data from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration suggest that January of 2016 was, for the globe, a truly extraordinary month.

.

Coming off the hottest year ever recorded (2015), January saw the greatest departure from average of any month on record, according to data provided by NASA.

.

But as you can see in the NASA figure above, the record breaking heat wasnt uniformly distributed  it was particularly pronounced at the top of the world, showing temperature anomalies above 4 degrees Celsius (7.2 degrees Fahrenheit) higher than the 1951 to 1980 average in this region.

.

Indeed, NASA provides a zonal mean version of the temperature map above, which shows how the temperature departures from average change based on ones latitude location on the Earth. As you can see, things get especially warm, relative to what the Earth is used to, as you enter the very high latitudes: [charts tables maps]

.

Global warming has long been known to be particularly intense in the Arctic  a phenomenon known as Arctic amplification  but even so, lately the phenomenon has been extremely pronounced.

.

This unusual Arctic heat has been accompanied by a new record low level for Arctic sea ice extent during the normally ice-packed month of January, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center  over 400,000 square miles below average for the month. And of course, that is closely tied to warm Arctic air temperatures.

.

Weve looked at the average January temperatures, and we look at what we call the 925 millibar level, about 3,000 feet up in the atmosphere, says Mark Serreze, the centers director. And it was, I would say, absurdly warm across the entire Arctic Ocean. The center reports temperature anomalies at this altitude of more than 6 degrees Celsius (13 degrees Fahrenheit) above average for the month.

.

The low sea ice situation has now continued into February. Current ice extent is well below levels at the same point in 2012, which went on to set the current record for the lowest sea ice minimum extent:

Its a complicated picture, say scientists, but its likely much of it has to do with the very strong El Ni event that has carried over from 2015. But thats not necessarily the only factor.
