The annual deviations shown in the chart have been adjusted to be relative to the period 1850-1899 (for Hadley Centre/CRU) and 1880-1899 (for NASA/GISS) to better monitor the EU objective not to exceed 2 ºC above pre-industrial values. Over Europe average annual temperatures during the real pre-industrial period (1750-1799) were very similar to those during 1850-1899.
