Summary
Abstract: The early version consists of monthly surface-air temperature
anomalies for both hemispheres, relative to a 1951-1970 reference
period, on a 5 X 10 degree latitude/longitude global grid. Another
data set has been added containing monthly temperature anomalies
(departures from a 1957-1975 reference period mean) for the Antarctic
for grid points from 65 S to 85 S. The basis of this data set is
