March became the 10th hottest month in a row

March this year was the hottest ever recorded and the 10th hottest month in a row, with sea surface temperatures also reaching a “shocking” new record, reports the European Union (EU) Climate Change Service Copernicus/C3S. which monitors climate observations, writes LETA with reference to AFP.

Since June 2023, every month has been recognized as the hottest, and March 2024 was no exception.

C3S said the average global temperature in March was 1.68 degrees Celsius higher than the average March temperature between 1850 and 1900, the benchmark period for the pre-industrial era.

The previous March temperature record was broken by just 0.1C, but the broader trend is more worrying, said Samantha Burgess, deputy director of C3S. In March, temperatures were above average in many places on Earth, from various regions of Africa to Greenland, South America and Antarctica.

March also completed the hottest 12-month period with average temperatures 1.58 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
