MOSCOW, Feb 9 – RIA Novosti. Scientists will recalculate the temperature norms, taking as a basis the period from 1991 to 2020, said the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand.
“When we calculate temperature anomalies, we use base periods. This base period in all countries, in all national services is like this – 1961-1990, but since the warming trend is very strong, I already hope that from next year averaging characteristics will be obtained for the next period 1991-2020, ”said Wilfand.
He noted that after recalculation, deviations from the norm will look completely different, they will not be as large as now. Scientists will recalculate average temperatures throughout 2021.
