Trends in regional average surface temperatures

Year: 2005 Author: UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Latin America and the Caribbean follows the global trend of recent increases in temperatures. Observational records show that the region, with a few variations, has been warming through the 20th century. As in the rest of the world, the average temperature increased gradually from early 1900s except a somewhat cooler period in the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1980s the temperature again started to increase and has continued to increase until today, with the last ten years as the warmest period.
