Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Thursday, February 6, in the Argentine Antarctic, the territory of Argentina in the Antarctic polar region, made history as the warmest day on record.
The temperature, which increased to 18.3 degrees during the day, was announced by Argentina's National Meteorological Service. The temperature was detected by Argentina's Esperanza Research Base in the Arctic. The previous record temperature was 17.5 degrees and was measured on March 24, 2015, according to statements by the meteorological service, which has held regular records since 1961.
Similar record temperature measurements are seen at Marambio, another Polar Research Base in Argentina. The same day was the hottest day here since 1971, with 14.1 degrees. The previous record was also recorded on February 24, 2013, with 13.8 degrees.
Experts predict new record temperatures will be recorded at shorter intervals, especially looking at the course of the past 20 years.
Polar melting and rising waters threaten many seasoned countries and cities, especially in countries such as Argentina.
