June 2023 was the hottest June in recorded history. This is evidenced by the data of the global temperature analysis by NASA.
The GISTEMP analysis is based on data collected by weather stations and Antarctic research stations, as well as instruments on ships and ocean buoys.
NASA scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York are analyzing these measurements. They do this to account for uncertainties in the data and to maintain consistency in the methods used to calculate the annual mean difference in global surface temperature.
“These ground-based measurements of surface temperature are consistent with satellite data collected since 2002 by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder on NASA’s Aqua satellite and with other estimates,” NASA said.
The agency uses the period 1951-1980 as a baseline to understand how global temperatures change over time.
“Independent analyses by the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service and NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information likewise found June 2023 to be the warmest June in their records,” NASA added.
We will remind, according to the data of the US National Environmental Prediction Centers, on July 3 meteorologists recorded the hottest day in the entire history of observations.
