NOAA, NASA to announce 2017 global temperature and climate conditions
NOAA and NASA are two keepers of the world's temperature data and independently produce a record of Earth's surface temperatures, as well as changes based on historical observations over ocean and land. Consistency between the two independent analyses, and analyses produced by other countries, increases confidence in the accuracy of such data, the assessment of the data, and resulting conclusions. These analyses provide government and business leaders with critical decision-making information.
