Temperature Trends in Antarctica

This image shows warming of the Antartctic ice-sheet surface inland of the Antarctic Peninsula. This warming is significantly higher than previously reported, exceeding 0.1 degree C per decade over the past 50 years, and is strongest in winter and spring. The image incorporates temperature data collected over a 50-year period from 1957 to 2006. Surface color is derived from low-resolution LIMA data, while topography is from a RADARSAT 200m DEM. The ice cover is derived from 12-km AMSR-E data taken on 5/14/08.
