State of the Climate in 2013: Highlights


On July 17, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the American Meteorological Society released the 2013 State of the Climate report. The report was led by editors from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.

The report, a 24-year tradition encompassing the work of 425 authors from 57 countries, uses dozens of climate indicators to track patterns, changes, and trends of the global climate system. These indicators often reflect many thousands of measurements from multiple independent data sets. The report also details cases of unusual and extreme regional events, such as Super Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated portions of Southeast Asia in November 2013.

The highlights for the State of the Climate in 2013 report were created by the team in consultation with the report’s editors and authors at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.
