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.

Daily Temperature and Precipitation Reports - Data Tables

Daily Summary Observations

Daily summaries answer questions such as

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?
