Monthly Near-Surface Air Temperature Averages

Metadata Updated: July 8, 2015

Global surface temperatures in 2010 tied 2005 as the warmest on record. The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) was established in 1982 as part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) to collect and analyze the global distribution of clouds, their properties, and their diurnal, seasonal, and interannual variations. The LAS provides data for Monthly Near-Surface Air Temperature Averages from 1994 to 2008.
