Optimal Surface Temperature Reconstructions Using Terrestrial Borehole Data, WDC Paleoclimatology

[ Get Data ]
[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data is an optimal Northern Hemisphere mean surface temperature
reconstruction from terrestrial borehole temperature profiles spanning
the past five centuries. The pattern of borehole ground surface
temperature (GST) reconstructions displays prominent discrepancies
with instrumental surface air temperature (SAT) estimates during the
20th century, suggesting the presence of a considerable ... View entire text
