Changing temperature anomaly baselines

I wanted to check whether the choice of baseline can affect the calculation of  global temperature anomalies from station data. Each temperature index (GISS, Berkeley, CRU) uses different normalisation periods for calculating weather station temperature anomalies. I was surprised to … Continue reading
