    The global-average lower tropospheric temperature anomaly rebounded from +0.29 deg. C in October to +0.50 deg. C in November. Both hemispheres, as well as the tropics, contributed to this warmth. The global anomaly for November of +0.50 deg. C is a period record for November (since 1979); the previous November high was +0.40 deg C. in 2004 2005. [NOTE: These satellite measurements are not calibrated to surface thermometer data, but use on-board redundant precision platinum resistance thermometers.]
