October global temperature is 0.75C

Global averaged temperature for October 2018 was 0.75C based on merging GHCNV3 with HadSST3 and using spherical triangulation. This is a fairly large rise of¬† 0.14C since September. The baseline for temperature anomalies is always 1961-1990. The annual value for … Continue reading

GHCN August 2018 temp = 0.69C

Global temperatures for August 2018 were 0.69C based on merging GHCNV3 and HadSST3, and using spherical triangulation. The baseline for temperature anomalies is 1961-1990. The annual average so far (8 months) for 2018 is 0.66C. 2018 is continuing a post … Continue reading

July’s Hadcrut4.6(3D) = 0.65C

My preferred method for calculating the global average temperature anomaly¬† for HADCRUT4.6 is by triangulating the measurements over the surface of a sphere. This gives almost identical results to those of Cowtan & Way but is a far simpler and … Continue reading
