Arctic and Antarctic Temperatures ..... January 2000 to May 2017

Weather Eye

Each month Professor Ole Humlum of the The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), in Norway publishes on the web his very comprehensive web site updating a large number of charts and related analyses of data from international sources such as NASA.

His latest page can be found at:

Alternatively, you can use the June 2017‘update' link on www.climate4you.com 

One example of what is contained in his web base is a chart of Arctic and Antarctic surface air temperatures from January 200 to May 2017. 

HadCRUT4 is a global temperature dataset, providing gridded temperature anomalies across the world as well as averages for the hemispheres and the globe as a whole. CRUTEM4 and HadSST3 are the land and ocean components of this overall dataset, respectively.

These datasets have been developed by the Climatic Research Unit (University of East Anglia) in conjunction with the Hadley Centre (UK Met Office), apart from the sea surface temperature (SST) dataset which was developed solely by the Hadley Centre.

The thin line shows the monthly temperature anomaly, while the thicker line shows the running 37-month (c. 3 year) average.
