Copernicus: Globally, the seven hottest years on record were the last seven; carbon dioxide and methane concentrations continue to rise

The European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service releases its annual findings which show that globally 2021 was among the seven warmest on record. Europe experienced a summer of extremes with severe heatwaves in the Mediterranean and floods in central Europe. Meanwhile, global concentrations of carbon dioxide and – very substantially – methane continued to increase. […]

Copernicus tracks the ozone hole closure of 2021 – one of the longest lived Antarctic ozone holes on record

Scientists from the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service confirm that the 2021 Antarctic ozone hole has almost reached its end, following a season with a considerably large and prolonged ozone hole. Its closure will occur only a few days earlier than in 2020, which was the longest lived since 1979. The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), […]

Copernicus: A summer of wildfires saw devastation and record emissions around the Northern Hemisphere

The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service has been closely monitoring a summer of extreme wildfires across the Northern Hemisphere, including intense hotspots around the Mediterranean basin and in North America and Siberia. The intense fires led to new records in the CAMS dataset with the months of July and August seeing their highest global carbon emissions respectively. Scientists […]

Copernicus: Mediterranean region evolves into wildfire hotspot, while fire intensity reaches new records in Turkey

The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service is observing closely the wildfire activities in the eastern Mediterranean region. In Turkey and southern Italy, CAMS data shows the emissions and intensity of wildfires are rapidly increasing, and countries like Morocco, Albania, Greece, North Macedonia and Lebanon are also affected. The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), implemented by the […]
