Caption: Global average temperature increase, 2010. Earth map animation (cylindrical projection) showing the changes in the distribution of temperature anomalies worldwide for the year 2010. The data displayed is not the absolute temperature, but the increase in average temperature compared to the temperature during the period 1971 to 2000. Warmer averages are shown in red, and cooler averages in blue, with darker colours indicating a larger anomaly (scale bar at lower right). The animation shows the months for 2010 in chronological order, ending with a display of the temperature anomaly averages for the entire year. Overall, the sequence shows that most parts of the world were warmer in 2010 compared to the period 1971 to 2000. This animation was produced by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as part of the Global Analysis section of its annual State of the Climate report.
