This page contains links to a number of visualisations of global and hemispheric temperatures. The temperature dataset used in most cases is our HadCRUT4 data (land and marine), or our CRUTEM4 data (land only).

Click the "more info" links for details about each visualisation, or click the images to obtain a larger image. You are free to use these images provided you attribute them to Tim Osborn (CRU, UEA) and cite the HadCRUT4 or CRUTEM4 references listed below.
