Apollo News Snippets – October 2019

The August temperature departure map shows pockets of record warmth over every continent other than Australia and Europe – but check out the huge pockets of record warmth over the oceans, that is not good when you consider it is hurricane season here in the Northern Hemisphere.
  • The August 2019 NOAA Global Climate report is out and you guessed it, it was a warm month! In fact, it was the second warmest August on record – with the five warmest Augusts on record all occurring since 2014. Oh and we do not talk about this point often, but it was the 6th warmest month ever over the open oceans. And keep in mind that the oceans help drive global weather patterns so warming here could be just as perilous as over the land. This also marks the 32nd month in a row that the Trump administration has denied the scourge of global climate change.
  • Boo! Halloween is upon us so of course it is time for a ghastly Google search of the month, namely “GIS and demons!” And wouldn’t you know it, I actually found an article with both GIS and the word demon in it, but okay, in the final edition of the tutorial the word ‘demon’ was cut out. But either way, the Pavlis and Langford tutorial on QGIS for geology is a worthwhile read so it still made the cut for this month’s Google search!
