Tracking the Changing Climate with Earth Observations

Indicators of change

The climate is a complex system and it is changing fast. It can be hard to keep track of what is going on. We have put together a dashboard which gathers together the key indicators of climate change

The indicators are based on earth observations made at surface stations, by ships and buoys at sea, from satellites and by observers and research teams around the world. These earth observing networks are crucial for understanding the changing climate.

There are many data sets out there providing useful information. As well as the data sets produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre, we have brought together data from respected institutes and research groups around the world to provide a more complete picture of what's happening in the climate.

The front page shows the main indicators. Beneath each one there is additional detail, drilling down into why the indicator is important, how it has changed and how it was calculated. The pages also link through to the data so that you can explore it for yourself.
