A recent study by the University of Santiago de Chile found that 2020 is the warmest year in the Antarctic Peninsula in the last several decades.

The northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica reached temperatures between 20C and 30C (35.60F and 37.40F) between January and August of 2020, as per research conducted by Chilean Air Force’s Frei Base on King George Island.



In a statement released by the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH), climate expert Raul Cordero said the temperature was “20C higher than the normal.”

“On the far northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, the average maximum temperature so far this year has exceeded 00C,” said Cordero. This is the highest in the last 31 years. “

He called it “worrying” because it indicated that the rapid rate of ocean warming observed in the region in the late twentieth century was beginning again.

Winter temperatures in the upper southern hemisphere are in stark contrast, but between August and September, the registered temperature reached -16.80C, the lowest since 1970. The Antarctic Peninsula, the northern part of Antarctica, set several countries’ scientific and military bases such as Argentina, Chile, and Britain.
