The 2015 report, a 26-year tradition encompassing the work of 450 authors from 62 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 events, such as 2015 surpassing 2014 as the warmest year on record since at least eh mid-to-late 19th century resulting from both long-term global warming and one of the strongest el Niño events.
