WWW Animations of the CRU-UK Temperature Record:
1856 to 1997   (CRU - Climate Research Unit)

Listed below are six different animations of CRU Temperature data that can be used to view globally mapped temperature for the time period of available data (1856 to 1997). In each case, temperature anomalies (composed to the period 1961 to 1990) are mapped. Only locations with data for a particular season or year are mapped.

For background information regarding these temperature anomalies please click here.

The data can viewed via animations in several forms:
  1. Annual averages from 1856 to 1997.
  2. Seasonal averages, Dec/Jan/Feb from 1856 to 1997.
  3. Seasonal averages, Mar/Apr/May from 1856 to 1997.
  4. Seasonal averages, Jun/Jul/Aug from 1856 to 1997.
  5. Seasonal averages, Sep/Oct/Nov from 1856 to 1997.
  6. All seasons sequentially from 1856 to 1997
