There is no accurate and consistent single temperature of the surface of the Earth. The temperature varies moment to moment, and from one point to another - and from century to century. However, if you averaged over space over the course of a year, the average temperature would be about 16 degrees Celsius.


Highest recorded has been 56.7oC and lowest -89oC. These temperatures are dry bulb temperatures.
Most of the Earth is subject to heating and cooling by the oceans and the atmosphere. Except for extreme locations on Earth (deserts, poles), the temperature range is compatible with human activities, falling in the range between -40° and +40° C (-40° to 104°F).
Temperatures tend to be hotter near the equator, or when it is summer at a given location. Ocean and air currents also affect the range of temperatures. Climate change scientists estimate that ever-increasing levels of anthropogenic carbon dioxide could raise global temperatures several degrees C over the next century. 12345678966544 There is no accurate and consistent single temperature of the surface of the Earth.

How do the temperatures on Uranus compare to temperatures on earth?

Uranus is a gas giant planet, and the coldest major planet in the solar system. The temperatures in the upper layers of its atmosphere (hydrogen and helium) are as low as 49Â

What is the temperature of the Earth?

The temperature of the Earth is approximately 5500 degrees Celsius at its center and 0 degrees Celsius at its surface; thus, heat continuously flows toward the surface and the
