Temperatures

10 hottest years

This interactive graph displays the 10 hottest years in record, based on four different sources (NOAA, NASA, UK-MetOffice, JMA). It shows clearly that the 10 hottest year every recorded (since measurements started in 1880) all occur in the last 17 years, with the top records being 2015 and 2014.

 

Global surface temperature

This interactive graph, developed by UNEP/GRID-Geneva, is based on four independent sources (NOAA, NASA, UK-MetOffice, JMA). It shows the trend of the global surface temperatures, which is clearly upward. Fluctuations are a normal phenomena, but a general warming trend is obvious.
 

Sea Ice Extent

Arctic Sea ice extent live


This interactive graph has been developed by UNEP/GRID-Geneva and displays values of the Arctic sea ice extent. It is automatically updated every day and shows a severe decline in the Arctic sea ice extent since the beginning of satellite measurements in 1979.

 

Arctic Sea ice extent mean

This interactive graph is regularly updated and displays the deviations from the minimal and maximal values of the Arctic sea ice extent since 1978, compared to the average 1980-1999. The deviation to the minimal sea ice extent is particularly noteworthy.

 

Land glaciers mass

Change in glacier mass


This interactive graph has been developed by UNEP/GRID-Geneva and displays values of the annual as well as cumulative annual mass balances of 'reference' glaciers since 1957 based on a live data stream from the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS).

LIMES


LIMES stands for "Live Monitoring of Earth Surface". It is a web application developed by GRID-Geneva, that allows to automatically monitor landcover changes using satellite imagery. LIMES will allow to follow several hundreds of sites per year.
