Global Six Century Temperature Patterns, WDC Paleoclimatology
Entry ID: NOAA_NGDC_PALEO_6CENTURY

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of reconstructed global annual surface
temperatures for each year from 1400 to 1995, including statistical
uncertainties and reconstructed principal component analyses. This
data set is based on the multivariate calibration of widely
distributed high-resolution proxy climate indicators (tree rings,
coral deposits, ice core, etc.) and long-term instrumental temperature
records.
