Satellite measurements of the Earth's surface temperature have confirmed that global warming is heating up the planet.
The infrared system measures heat radiating from the earth and was used to record temperatures from 2003 to 2017.
Surface - Temperature - Map - Satellite - Data
The surface skin temperature map , which is derived solely from the satellite data, showed a warming pattern consistent with other measurements taken on land.
A combination of both data sets and all the existing research now offers almost irrefutable proof of global warming, researchers claim.
Results - Air - Temperature - Measurements - Land
The results were compared to surface air temperature measurements on land, taken by the American space agency NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre and showed the two showing the same trend.
The authors of the paper in which the results are shown wrote: 'The satellite-based surface temperatures can serve as an important validation of surface-based estimates and help to improve surface-based data sets in a way that can be extended back many...
