Apollo News Snippets – June 2021

Some 2.44% of the world saw record temperatures during April 2021 with most of these records found in Africa, the Middle East and South America. Pockets of cooler weather were found over central Europe, southern United States and southeastern Australia.
  • If you read this monthly piece regularly you will not be shocked to find out that the April 2021 NOAA global climate report confirmed that indeed it was a warm month! How warm was it? Well to be fair it was the lowest departure since April 2013 at some 1.42°F (0.79°C) above the 20th Century global average. This marked the 45th consecutive April and the 436th consecutive month above this average – with the last month falling below the average all the way back in December 1984.
  • Did you know that June 20th is International Surfing Day? Well, I certainly didn’t but either way in honor of this fun holiday, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and surfing.” And wouldn’t you know it, we actually found a paper on the topic by Samuel Wilson of Penn State University. In his Master’s thesis, Wilson uses GIS along with a plethora of natural resource and cultural data layers to determine the best locations in Delaware to install artificial surf reefs to support the growing sport.
