Apollo News Snippets – October 2021

The NOAA extreme weather events map for August 2021 shows conflicting sea ice extents with near record coverage in Antarctica while in the Arctic Sea ice extents are near record lows. In the USA, 2021 tied with 1936 as the warmest summer on record.
  • The August 2021 NOAA Global Climate report is out and yep, it was warm again in August. Just how warm was it? Well, it was the 6th warmest August on record with temperatures some 1.62°F (0.90°C) above the 20th Century average. And in fact, it was the warmest August on record over landmasses in the Northern Hemisphere at 2.59°F (1.44°C) above average.
  • October 27th is National American Beer Day, so in honor of this foamy beverage, our Google search for the month was, “Beer and GIS.” And wouldn’t you know it, we found an academic publication on the topic by K. Elzinga et al. whereby they use GIS to track the spread of craft brewpubs across the USA, linking their growth to state-level demographic data. So, after you check out this paper, head to your local craft-beer pub for a few tasty, foamy treats!
