September 2019 was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), based on measurements taken after 1880. According to the report, the average global temperature of the Earth’s surface and sea in September 2019 was 0.95 degrees Celsius over the mid-20th century.
Each month of September 2015, 2016 and 2019 was characterized by an average temperature of the Earth’s surface and the ocean above 0.90 degrees Celsius. The period from January to September 2019 is the second warmest period from January to September at a temperature of 0.94 ° C above the 20th-century average recorded by NOAA.
Among the other records of this period are records about North America: September 2019 was the hottest September in North America since the start of the continental temperature record in 1910. September 2019 in the South American, Africa, Asia, Gulf of Mexico, and Hawaii regions was one of the warmest three months of September recorded to date.
Nevertheless, the Arctic sea ice area in September was the third-lowest record ever compared to the average of the period from 1981 to 2010.
The expansion of Antarctic sea ice in September was 1.3% lower than the 1981-2010 average.
