Last October turned out to be the second warmest October month in 137 years, which continues the streak that has characterized all 2017, reported the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
According to the monthly analysis carried out by scientists at the Goddard Institute of Space Studies in New York (GISS), last month was 0.90 degrees Celsius warmer than the average temperature of October 1951-1980.
In addition, it was barely warmer than October 2016, by 0.89 degrees Celsius, but less than the maximum record recorded in 2015, which was 1.08 degrees higher.
NASA recalled that the monthly analysis of the GISS team is based on publicly available data from some 6,300 meteorological stations around the world, between buoys and Antarctic research stations.
NASA recalled in its report that the modern global temperature record begins around 1880 because previous observations did not cover enough of the planet. Monthly analyzes are sometimes updated when more data is available and results are subject to change.
