NOAA BAMS State of the Climate

Every year, NCEI leads an international effort to develop the peer-reviewed State of the Climate Report, which has been an annual supplement to Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society(BAMS) since its introduction (as “Climate Assessment”) in 1991. The report summarizes the global and regional climate of the preceding calendar year and places it into historical context. Recent editions cover more than 40 Essential Climate Variables, with input from more than 350 authors from nearly 50 nations.

WMO Statement on the Status of the Global Climate

WMO, working with UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), is responsible for the periodic assessments of climate change issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In June 1993, the 45th session of the Executive Council of WMO decided that greater efforts were needed to promote the WMO role as a provider of credible scientific information on climate and its variability and requested that arrangements be made for the regular wide distribution of WMO statements on the status of the global climate. In response to this decision, statements have been provided annually through the WCDMP.

NOAA State of the Climate

The State of the Climate is a collection of monthly summaries recapping climate-related occurrences on both a global and national scale.

NOAA Climate Prediction Center

CPC delivers real-time products and information that predict and describe climate variations on timescales from weeks to years thereby promoting effective management of climate risk and a climate-resilient society.

JMA World Climate

JMA monitors the global climate with CLIMAT and SYNOP reports from NMHSs through the Global Telecommunication System (GTS) of WMO. Quality-checked data on temperature and precipitation are assembled to assess extreme climate events. Weekly, monthly and seasonal monitoring reports on extreme climate events with brief descriptions of disastrous events are available on this page, along with world distribution maps of temperature and precipitation. ClimatView is a tool for viewing monthly climate data

Climate Reanalyzer

Climate Reanalyzer is a platform for visualizing climate and weather datasets. On this site, you can access climate information using interfaces for reanalysis and historical station data. Maps, timeseries, and correlation analyses can be plotted for gridded models.

IRI Climate Map Room

Climate: Analysis, Monitoring and Forecasts. Historical, current, and future climate conditions around the globe.

Global Temperature and Temperature Anomaly Data

Met Office Hadley Centre observations datasets

HadCRUT4 is a gridded dataset of global historical surface temperature anomalies relative to a 1961-1990 reference period. Data are available for each month since January 1850, on a 5 degree grid. The dataset is a collaborative product of the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

NOAA Climate Monitoring: Global Surface Temperature Anomalies

Climate Monitoring at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information’s mission is to monitor and assess the state of the Earth’s climate in near real-time, providing decision-makers at all levels of the public and private sectors with data and information on climate trends and variability including perspectives on how the climate of today compares to the past.

NASA GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP)

Graphs and tables are updated around the middle of every month using current data files from NOAA GHCN v3 (meteorological stations), ERSST v4 (ocean areas), and SCAR (Antarctic stations), combined as described in our December 2010 publication (Hansen et al. 2010).

NOAA Global Ocean Heat and Salt Content

Data distribution figures for temperature and salinity observations, temperature and salinity anomaly fields for depths 0-2000m, heat content and steric sea level
(thermosteric, halosteric, total). Temperature anomalies and heat content fields are detailed in World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m),
1955-2010
, pdf (8.1 MB). The same calculations have been extended to keep the fields current and include fields of salinity anomalies, and steric sea level components.
Explanation of differences in heat content between published work and online values is outlined in the notes (pdf, 4.2 MB).
