The most common measure of global temperature rise is here on the Earth’s surface, but scientists also gather data on how temperatures in the atmosphere high above us are changing

June 21, 2017 — Of particular interest is the troposphere – the lowest layer of the atmosphere where almost all of our weather occurs. To track temperatures, scientists use satellites, which have been providing data since they were first launched in the late 1970s.
