Indicator: U.S. Surface Temperatures
Key Points: Rising temperatures in the United States are indicative of warming in the global climate system. In the contiguous United States, temperatures during this century have been, on average, 1.5°F warmer than during the last century. Human activities have contributed to this increase in temperature through the addition of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. About the Indicator: These data were obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) nClimDiv dataset. The nClimDiv is based on daily data from the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN), which includes temperature and other climatic measurements from stations located around the world. Why It’s Important: - This Indicator can inform preparedness decisions in a wide variety of sectors, such as energy production, agriculture, and human health.
