This 28th annual check-up for the planet is based on contributions from more than 450 scientists, representing more than 60 countries. It provides a detailed update on global climate indicators, notable weather events and other data collected from locations on land, water, ice and even space.

Some of the climate indicators include greenhouse gases, temperature, precipitation, sea level, sea ice extent, glacier mass, snow cover and tropical cyclones.
