The climate system involves complicated interactions among diverse atmospheric and environmental elements, and it is essential to comprehend prolonged temperature trends for evaluating the consequences of climate change. In this study, an analysis of temperature changes in Türkiye over the period from 2013 to 2023 was realized. Employing advanced geospatial technology, specifically Google Earth Engine, and utilizing the ERA5 dataset, this study seeks to delve deeply into temperature trends throughout Türkiye. The incorporation of satellite imagery and detailed climate data with high resolution facilitates a detailed exploration of temporal and spatial fluctuations, enhancing a nuanced comprehension of climate dynamics. As climate change continues to exert its influence globally, a focused analysis of Türkiye's temperature trends becomes a necessity for informed decision-making in areas such as agriculture, water resource management, and urban planning. This study aimed to contribute valuable insights into the evolving climate change of Türkiye, considering the relationship between the changing environment and societal considerations. Results indicated a 0.20 Celsius degree increment over Türkiye during this ten-year period, while the Southeastern Anatolia Region faced the highest warming.
