Tropical Land Temperature Anomaly Time Series, 1851-June 1997

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The University of Washington Joint Institute for the Study of the
Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) offers a Tropical Land Temperature
Anomaly Time Series for the years 1851-1997. ENSO tends to warm the
tropics, and this index captures this tendency over the land
regions. The average is taken over 30N-30S, GM-120E and 150E-GM, so
excluding New Guinea. The data was provided by Phil Jones of the
Unversity of East Anglia.

This data may be freely downloaded from the JISAO WWW site. Link to
