Researchers use 'global thermometer' to track temperature extremes, droughts

Large areas of Earth's surface are experiencing rising maximum temperatures, which affect virtually every ecosystem on the planet, including ice sheets and tropical forests that play major roles in regulating the biosphere, scientists have reported......

Earth's Maximum Temperature Profile: Histograms of global annual maximum land-surface temperature capture the unique influence of different land-cover types on the expression of maximum land-surface temperatures. Tracking shifts in the distribution of these annual histograms provides a new integrated measure of energy balance components and land-cover change, and a different means to monitor biospheric change.
