Since the late 1940s the average temperature of the coldest days on the Antarctic Peninsula has soared by 14°C. Through a novel analysis of daily temperature records collected at the peninsula's Vernadsky Research Base, Frankze identified that the strong warming trend has affected the coldest 5% of days on the Antarctic Peninsula over the course of the observational period, from 1947 to 2011.
