Whether or not you are an elementary, middle, or high school science teacher, we bet that you observe and investigate air temperatures or (their effects) with your students. Changing air temperatures are cyclical and predictable, but also are rising beyond the normal range due to a variety of fa
A persistent heatwave has been lingering over parts of Europe, setting record high temperatures and turning typically green landscapes to brown.
In August 2018, temperature records have fallen across the northwestern United States.
Earth’s global surface temperatures in 2017 ranked as the second warmest since 1880, according to an analysis by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS).
It is frigid in much of Canada and the Midwestern and Eastern United States. Daily low-temperature records have dropped like snowflakes. New Year’s polar plunges have been canceled due to the cold, and many people in the Southeast are in a battle to keep their pipes from freezing.
Earth is a great planet to live on. It has a wonderful atmosphere around it. This jacket of gases does a lot for us. It keeps us warm, it gives us air to breathe, it protects us from the sun, and it's where the weather happens.
This graph illustrates the change in global surface temperature relative to 1951-1980 average temperatures. Seventeen of the 18 warmest years in the 136-year record all have occurred since 2001, with the exception of 1998. The year 2016 ranks as the warmest on record.
NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) provides monthly maps and graphs showcasing nearly global surface temperature changes monthly for the period since 1880 when meteorological stations were established around the world.
