The State of Climate: Other Indicators

LARGE_KC_SOC-OtherPage_SurfReflect_SSTThe websites on this page provide updates from research centers, media, and other organizations around the world on a range of phenomena that provide evidence on the current state of climate.

AGAGE makes precision measurements of methane, refrigerants and other significant greenhouse gases, collecting data at 11 stations around the world.



Real-time temperature and salinity data, the “vital signs” of the oceans, from more than 3,500 profilers in the international Argo network is available here.

Note: Measurements made in proximity to urban pollution sources tend to report higher CO2 concentrations than the global average.

  1. Se esta escribiendo una propuesta de transporte publico de la ciudad de Cochabamba-Bolivia, por lo que seria importante contar con datos de AGAGE en el periodo 2014-2015. Gracias

  2. Thank you for this data. We use it our course on sustainable transport assessment, just to set the stage.
    I have one request however: I miss a graph showing emissions for the holocene. Currently the choice is from 1700-present, or from 800000 years to present. That is a big jump.
    Johan Röckstrom in the Planetary Boundaries framework talks of a stable period called the holocene, which started about 11700 years ago: “a relatively warm and stable geological period”. It would be nice to be able to show this stability, before the ‘anthropocene’ is shown to kick in.
    Thank you and kind regards

    1. Dear Yannick,

      We now offer a graph showing the last 10,000 years, which may be useful. Also we offer the graphs in PDF format to make it easier to download them in high resolution.

      1. Or let me ask my previous question in another way. According to the IEA, emissions from fossil fuels were flat in 2014 (and again in 2015). However according to the Carbon Tracker model, they increased in 2014 very much like other recent years:

        Which do you think is more reliable?

        Personally I like the model, and I’m hoping to see Carbon Tracker numbers for 2015 soon.

      2. I rose this very point quite a while ago (1+ year). Glad you added this graph. Something puzzles me: there seems to be two glitches on the map, a kind of doubling of the curve around 400 and 1700 years ago.
        BTW, the climate deniers should have their head examined: this curve of the last 10K years is QUITE convincing!
