Scientists at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say highest ocean temperatures recorded in May

Posted: Saturday, June 17, 2023. 10:21 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) say that ocean temperatures reached record-breaking highs for the month of May.

Experts say that the main factors are human-induced climate change, a developing El Nino event, effects from the 2022 Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano eruption and a new shipping emissions policy aimed at reducing air pollution.

In addition, combined land and ocean temperatures in May were the third warmest on record.

Scientists also noted that temperatures were above average throughout most of North America, South America and Africa.

Parts of Western Europe, Northwestern Russia, Southeast Asia and the Arctic also experienced warmer than average temperatures this month.

The NOAA noted that the warmest global record for the time period between March and May was also reached.

Analysts say that 2023 is very likely to rank among the 10 warmest years on record.
