These animations show reconstructed spacial patterns of annual temperature anomalies for the years 1730 to 1980. The colors (see colorbar) indicate anomaly departures from the 1902-1980 mean in degrees C.
To learn more about these data sets and their origins see the recent publication by Mann et al (1998). For an interactive presentation and update of the proxy-based annual global temperature pattern reconstructions published in Mann et al(1999) see Mann et al (1999). Mann et al (1998) is viewable from the NOAA WDC-A for Paleoclimatology web site here.
