Summary
Abstract: The NASA GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) provides a measure of the
changing global surface temperature with monthly resolution for the period
since 1880, when a reasonably global distribution of meteorological stations
was established. Input data for the analysis, collected by many national
meteorological services around the world, is the ... View entire text
