Abstract: Here, the author presents an analysis of the evolution of global temperature and Bond albedo anomalies in the period 2001-2013. Based on the radiative balance at the top of the atmosphere, an equation is presented to estimate the temperature anomaly following a particular albedo anomaly, and vice versa. The estimated values are compared with the observed values.

Keywords: Earth's radiative balance; global temperature anomalies; estimation of anomalies; Bond albedo anomalies.
