Observed global and European annual average temperature deviations, 1850-2007

Topics: ,
The source of the original data is the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia


Additional information

The global mean annual temperature deviations are in the source in relation to the base period 1961-1990. The annual deviations shown in the chart have been adjusted to be relative to the period 1850-1899 to better monitor the EU objective not to exceed 2 oC above preindustrial values. Over Europe average annual temperatures during the real preindustrial period (1750-1799) were very similar to those during 1850-1899.
