Climate experts from NOAA and NASA will announce new data on 2013 global temperatures during a media teleconference at 1:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

The scientists also will discuss 2013's most important weather and climate events. NOAA and NASA independently produce a record of Earth's surface temperatures and changes based on historical observations over oceans and land.

Consistency between the two independent analyses, as well as analyses produced by other countries, increases confidence in the accuracy of such data, the assessment of the data, and resulting conclusions. These analyses provide government and business leaders with critical information.

The NOAA and NASA 2013 global temperature analyses will be issued 90 minutes before the start of the teleconference (NOAA reportNASA release).  A slide set to accompany the presentations will also be available prior to the call at

NOAA's mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources. Join us on FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagram, and our other social media channels.

NASA's Earth science program goal is to develop a scientific understanding of Earth's system and its response to natural or human-induced changes, and to improve prediction of climate, weather, and natural hazards.
