Stimulus details: temperature change

impact chain for temperature change :
Looking for an impact chain on temperature change? We apologize that we do not provide an impact chain for temperature change as the graphical representation would be too complex.

For temperature change related impact chains see Hydrological drought, Meteorological drought and sea-level rise.
Besides the physical definition of temperature as kinetic energy, temperature describes the degree of hotness or coldness of a body or environment. Global mean surface temperature increased by approximately 1°C in the 20th century. One reason for this is the increasing anthropogenic emission of greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2) to the atmosphere. The rate of warming over the past 50 years is almost double that of the last 100 years. The warmest ten years (highest mean temperature) of the past 100 years are found in the years from 1997 to 2008.
