Indicator: Sea Surface Temperatures

2020 indicator

Key Points: During the past three decades, sea surface temperatures have exceeded the last century’s average every year and have been higher than at any other time since records began. About the Indicator: The data shown represent temperatures in the upper 10 meters of the ocean and were drawn from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) NOAAGlobalTemp dataset. Why It’s Important: - Changes in sea surface temperatures reflect the overall warming trend in the climate system and, in turn, influence weather and climate patterns worldwide.  - Sea surface temperature data can be used to understand the response of the ocean to global warming and, in turn, how that response may influence other changes in climate.
