State of the Climate System
Below are some plots for monitoring the state of the climate system.
The table below shows maps of various meteorological variables for reference. Click on a map to enlarge it.
The data for these plots comes from the NCEP Reanalysis 2 dataset over the period 1979-2015.
Wind vectors are colored according to the magnitude of the zonal wind
This space doesn’t have much right now, but I intend to include several other metrics for a quick look at the global climate all in one place. In addition to the standard temperature datasets, I hope to eventually include other metrics such as
- sea level
- sea ice
- water vapor
