UEA CRU Jones landsea t_air
The data is copied from UEA CRU. This dataset is a combination of land air temperature anomalies (Jones, 1994) and sea surface temperature anomalies (Parker et al., 1995) on a 5° x 5° grid-box basis. The merging of the two datasets is discussed in Parker et al. (1994). Both components of the dataset are expressed as anomalies from 1961-90, as this makes computation much easier. The dataset has been extensively used in the various IPCC reports (see, e.g., Nicholls et al., 1996). An absolute temperature climatology is being developed.
