NOAA and NASA collect and analyze the world’s temperature data and independently produce a record of Earth’s surface temperatures, as well as changes based on historical observations. Consistency between the two independent analyses, and analyses produced by other countries, increases confidence in the accuracy and assessment of the data and resulting conclusions. These analyses provide government and business leaders with critical decision-making information.
