GENEVA, 17 December (WMO) - The global mean surface temperature for is expected to be approximately °C above the annual mean value, according to records maintained by Members of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Consequently, will supplant last year () as the second warmest in the instrumental record. WMO, (), "WMO statement on the status of the global climate in ", World Meteorological Organization, WMO-No. Abstract: FOREWORD Since , the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), in cooperation with its Members, has issued annual statements on the status of the global climate. World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Published by: WMO Since , the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), through the Commission for climatology and in cooperation with its Members, has issued annual statements on the status of the global climate to provide credible scientific information on climate and its variability. Each year the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), in cooperation with its Members, issues a statement on the global climate of the previous year. This is an important document because, if we know the status of the climate today and the differences between this and the recent past, we can begin to plan for the future. This brochure.
national scientific voice on weather and climate. In , WMO, in its role as a provider of reli able scientific information on climate and its vari ability, began issuing annual statements on the status of the global climate. This booklet, the sev enth in the series, focuses on the status of the glob al climate in WMO Statement on the state of the Global Climate; Greenhouse Gas Bulletin; Meteoworld; WMO Airborne Dust Bulletin; WMO Reactive Gases Bulletin; World Meteorological Day Booklets (no longer published) Posters. Climate describes the average weather conditions for a particular location and over a long period of time. We study the climate, its variations and extremes, and its influences on a variety of activities including human health, safety and welfare to support evidence-based decision-making on how to best adapt to a changing climate. The year will stand out in the historical record of the global climate in many ways. Modern records for heat were broken: was a record warm year both globally and in many individual countries.
It is very likely that will be the hottest year on record, with global temperatures even higher than the record-breaking temperatures in Preliminary data shows that ’s global temperatures are approximately ° Celsius above pre-industrial levels, according to an assessment by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). WMO, in collaboration with Members, began issuing annual statements on the status of the global climate in This publication was issued in collaboration with the Met Office Hadley Centre, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia.
