Apollo News Snippets – March 2019

The January to December 2018 summary map shows record warmth over much of Europe and Northern Africa with a pocket of cooler than average temps off the coast of Greenland.
  • With the re-opening of the US government, we are able to continue our regularly scheduled review of the NOAA Global Climate report. And the last report put out by NOAA was the annual review of 2018 climatic conditions and, shocked face, the past year was one of the warmest on record. In fact, 2018 as the fourth warmest year on record with global temperatures nearly 1 degree Celsius above the 1880 to 1900 average. It was also the 42nd year in a row with temperatures above the 20th Century average.
  • Mardi Gras is on March 5th this year and in celebration of the annual event, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and Mardi Gras.” And if you look through the various results, you might find this gem of a PowerPoint by C. Buerger (sorry we are unsure of their first name!) of the University of Oklahoma who used GIS to maximize your enjoyment of the annual event. Buerger used GIS to model where a person should stand to increase their chance of catching Mardi Gras swag as well as where to maximize adult beverage enjoyment – you need these maps for your next trip to NoLa!
