Climate scientists keep careful records of extreme events around the world to understand the type of climate hazards that different parts of the world are vulnerable to and whether those events are becoming more frequent or intense over time. From devastating cyclones to crippling drought, this map highlights the events that climate scientists from around the world have concluded should go down in the record books as the year's most significant. The map is an interactive version of the map compiled each year for the annual State of the Climate Report,edited by NOAA National Climatic Data Center scientists and published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
