Apollo News Snippets – December 2017

The October 2017 temperature departure map shows small pockets of record warmth across the world with average to below average conditions in northern Africa, central Asia and western North America.

This was the 394th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th Century average and was also the 4th warmest October on record behind 2015 (the hottest on record), 2014 and 2016 respectively. With Syria joining the Paris Climate Accord, that leaves the United States as the only nation not to sign on – sad…
  • Christmas is nearly upon as the year draws to a close and in honor of this special holiday, my Google Search of the month was, “Candy cane and GIS.” And okay while this result from Penn State University’s Department of Geography has zero to do with Christmas, it is still an intriguing topic about how language impacts our spatial imagination – enjoy the article!
  • From Augusta, Georgia we travel over the Pacific Ocean for this month’s GIS review of Hawaii’s second largest city, Pearl City.
