Annual and Seasonal Global Temperature Anomalies in the Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere, 1958 - 2002, CDIAC NDP-008

Summary
Abstract: Surface temperatures and thickness-derived temperatures from a network
of 63 well-distributed radiosonde stations have been used to estimate
global and zonal annual and seasonal temperature anomalies for the
period 1958 through the 2001. These anomaly estimates were made using
a 1958-1977 reference period mean. Anomaly estimates are provided for
the surface, troposphere (850-300 mb), tropopause layer (300-100 mb)
and low stratosphere (100-50 mb; 100-30 mb) layers for polar,
subtropical, and equatorial zones, as well as the tropics, both
hemispheres, and the world. Most of the values are column-mean
temperatures obtained from the differences in height between
constant-pressure surfaces at individual radiosonde stations. The
pressure-height data before 1980 were obtained from published values
in Monthly Climatic Data of the World.

These temperature anomalies can be used to analyze long-term
temperature trends for an atmospheric layer, a region, a hemisphere,
or a globe.

The NDP-008 data set can be obtained from:

Updated methods and trends, including graphics, for Angell's global,
hemispheric, and zonal temperature deviations derived from radiosonde
records, are also available through CDIAC's Trends Online.
