The fifth biggest continent has been attracting scientist and travelers over the last two centuries of the history of mankind. Antarctica, an area once described as "The Last Place on Earth" is also the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth.
Antarctica is the most distant and isolated place where the lowest temperature ever was measured minus 89 degree Celsius. Now based on the last day report, The World Meteorological Organization announced a high temperature of 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit in Antarctica might sound like a pleasant day in early spring.
Randy Cerveny, an Arizona State University professor said that verification and knowledge are most important for the study of weather patterns. The Antarctic region is a part of continuing efforts to expand a database of extreme weather and climate conditions throughout the world.
The scientist was remarked that the highest temperature of Antarctic region of 19.8 degree Celsius on January 30, 1982, at Signy Research Station reports by Global Times. The highest temperature for the Antarctic Plateau was minus 7.0 degrees Celsius discovered by weather experts on December 28, 1980, at Automatic Weather Station. Recent temperature result was declared by the weather scientist at the Argentina Research Base that the extreme temperature was 17.5 degree Celsius recorded on March 24, 2015.
In the past couple of decades scientists have been monitoring the temperature, they finally get a conclusion that the average annual temperature ranges from minus 10 Celsius on its coasts to minus 60 Celsius at the highest points in the interior. The polar regions of our planet have been termed the 'canary' in our global environment, Randy Cerveny said. Because of their sensitivity to climate changes, sometimes the first influences of changes in our global environment can be seen in the north and south Polar Regions.
Weather scientists have discovered the main reason behind the temperature of Antarctic extremes. There are two types of wind Foehn winds and Chinook winds. These are very warm downslope winds that can very rapidly heat up a place. These winds are found even here in the United States, particularly along the front range of the Rockies. Now Researchers who study climate change carefully watch the weather changes in the Antarctic region and elsewhere for evidence that the Earth is getting warmer.
