Apollo News Snippets – July 2021

The temperature departure map for the month of May 2021 shows pockets of record warmth in the Middle East and eastern Asia – and something we do not see often, some record cold over central India.
  • According to the May 2021 NOAA global climate report, May was a pretty warm month at some 1.46°F (0.81°C) above the 20th Century average – representing the 45th May in a row with above average temperatures and also the 6th warmest May on record. Some 3% of the world’s land mass saw record warmth in the month which was the tenth highest percentage for May.
  • July 7th is World Chocolate Day, soooo yummy! So in honor of this delectable holiday, our Google search of the month was, “Chocolate and GIS.” If you look through the results you might find this Master’s thesis by Lilian Lartey of Penn State University whereby she uses GIS and six environmental factors to map the prevalence of Cocoa Swollen Shoot Virus as well as to predict the location of future outbreaks.
