Increases in annual temperatures for a recent five-year period, relative to 1951-1980

Year: 2007 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Warming is widespread, generally greater over land than over oceans, and the largest gains in temperatures for the planet are over the North American Arctic, north central Siberia, and on the Antarctic Peninsula. These recent increases in temperature are confirmed by changes in other features: loss of sea ice, shift of tundra to shrub vegetation, and migration of marine and terrestrial ecosystems to higher latitudes.
