July 1995 is one of the warmest months in the temperature record—for the Antarctic. Several areas around the Antarctic shelf were as much as 5.5°C above seasonal norm of −38°C. For the rest of the globe, the average July temperature was not significantly above or below these norms, reports John Christy, an associate professor of atmospheric science in the Earth System Science Lab at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
