Researchers from New Zealand, the UK and the USA studied the data of weather stations over the past 60 years. The experts then used this information to create computer models.

It turned out that warmer temperatures in the Western Pacific for a long time lowered atmospheric pressure over the Weddell sea, located in the South Atlantic. As a result, this circumstance has led to increase in the flow of warm air over the South pole.

So, scientists noted that the natural warming trend is assumed to be enhanced by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases.

It is emphasized that the South pole is now heated at a rate of about 0.6 degrees Celsius per decade.
