Global ocean temperatures at warmest level since 1880
July 21, 2009

Global ocean temperatures rose to the warmest on record, according to data released last week by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The combined average global land and ocean surface temperature for June was second-warmest since global recording-keeping began in 1880.

NOAA reports that both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres experienced record sea surface temperatures in June. Temepratures in the Northern Hemisphere were 1.17°F (0.65°C) above normal, exceeding the 2005 record by 0.05°C or 4.5 percent; while the Northern Hemisphere’s increase of 0.99°F (0.55°C) exceeded the 1998 record of 0.92°F (0.51°C) or 7.6 percent.

Worldwide sea surface temperatures were 62.56°F (16.99°C), or 1.06 degrees F (0.59°C) above the 20th century average of 61.5°F (16.4°C).

The combined global land and ocean surface temperature for June 2009 was the second warmest on record after 2005, 1.12°F (0.62°C) above the 20th century average of 59.9°F (15.5°C). The global land surface temperature for June 2009 was 1.26°F (0.70°C) above the 20th century average of 55.9°F (13.3°C), ranking as the sixth-warmest June on record

NOAA also reported a return of el Niño, raising the prospect of dryness—and risk of forest fires—in Southeast Asia.

[…] I’ve heard one of the catalysts for the environmental movement were the first pictures taken of the Earth from outer space.  One of the astronauts made remarks that he could see the “scars of human destruction” from space.  I think it’s worthwhile to repost those remarks, this astronaut last looked at the Earth from space 12 years ago, and he can see the difference.  So can US spy Satellites.  For more on what additional melting could be possible this year, check out the National Snow and Ice Data Center update, and this analysis from Real Climate.  For more information on how the planet is warming, check out this recent post.
