El Niño-Southern Oscillation Indicators

CPC - Climate Weather Linkage: El Niño-Southern Oscillation

This webpage from the NOAA's Climate Prediction Center provides current information related to the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), including technical information for forecasting impacts in the United States.

Sea Level Rise - Map Viewer

Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts

This map viewer illustrates the scale of potential coastal flooding after varying amounts of sea level rise.

Global Temperature Anomalies - Graphing Tool

Climate at a Glance: Time Series - Global

One of the most obvious signals of climate change is the rise in global average temperature over the past several decades.

Snow and Ice Cover - Map Viewer

Snow Cover Maps

Daily maps show the extent of snow cover (and ice) over the contiguous United States, Alaska, or the whole Northern Hemisphere.

Snow or Ice Extent - Graphing Tool

Sea Ice and Snow Cover Extent

This tool generates bar graphs showing monthly extent of sea ice in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, or for the entire globe.

Global Temperature Anomalies - Map Viewer

Climate at a Glance - Global Temperature Anomalies

Global Land and Ocean Temperature Anomalies Maps, available at the NOAA Climate at a Glance website, provide valuable illustrative data. The anomalies are based on 1981-2010 mean.

Global Mean Sea Level - Graph

Laboratory for Satellite Altimetry / Sea Level Rise

As our planet warms, the ocean’s surface is rising. Water expands as it warms, and melting of ice sheets and glaciers on land adds water to the ocean.

Where do these measurements come from?

Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Coverage - Map Viewer

Climate Data Record

Sea Surface Temperature is an input for weather forecasting, climate studies, modeling, fisheries ecology, oceanography, and as a reference field for other satellite algorithms.

Climate Outlooks for the Next 3 Months - Probability Maps

Seasonal Outlooks

Climatologists use historical and current climate and weather data make climate predictions for temperature and precipitation in the future. These outlook products are different from weather forecasts.

Sea Surface Temperature - Map Viewer

Climate Prediction Center GIS Portal

Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is an important factor for weather forecasts and climate outlooks.  Where sea surface temperatures are relatively high, heat energy and moisture enter the atmosphere.
