Five-Year Average Global Temperature Anomalies from 1881 to 2006

Because of a rapid warming trend over the past 30 years, the Earth is now reaching and passing through the warmest levels seen in the last 12,000 years. This color-coded map shows a progression of changing global surface temperatures from 1881 to 2006, the warmest ranked year on record.

Animation of global temperature anomalies from 1881 to 2006 taken as a five-year moving average.  Dark blue indicates areas cooler than average.  Dark red indicates areas warmer than average.  This animation is annotated with the year that ends the five-year time span used in calculating the moving average.    Animation of global temperature anomalies from 1881 to 2006 taken as a five-year moving average.
