Apollo News Snippets – November 2021

The NOAA extreme weather events map for September 2021 shows that South America had its warmest September on record, while it was the coolest September in Europe since 2013 and in Oceania since 2018 – that said, both regions still had above average temperatures in the month.
  • The September 2021 NOAA global climate report is out and, well, as you might expect, we saw temperatures far above the 20th Century average. Temperatures in the month were some 1.62°F (0.90°C) above the 20th Century average making it the fifth warmest September on record, behind 2015, 2016, 2019 and 2020. Record warmth was noted over 6.43% of the world’s surface in the month – the fourth highest percentage for a September.
  • November 18th is the Great American Smokeout and in honor of this important holiday, our Google search of the month was, “Smokeout and GIS.” And of course, we found an excellent research paper by Yu et al. that looked at the relationship between tobacco sales and cultural demographics. As is common with this sort of research, there was a direct correlation established between lower socio-economic status and an increased density of tobacco sales locations.
