Abstract

This dataset consists of a global daily analysis of surface air temperature for the whole Earth since 1880, based on combined information from satellite and in situ data sources, including uncertainty estimates. This is v1.1 of the EUSTACE global daily air temperature product. This is a shortened version compared to the v1.0 product, using an experimental version of the statistical model.
The data has been compiled as part of the European Union Horizon 2020 EUSTACE (EU Surface Temperature for All Corners of Earth) project.

This product provides global mean air temperature data on a regular lat-lon grid with a grid spacing of 0.25 degrees, and provides daily data from 1850 to 2015. Uncertainty estimates are also provided, with both a 'total' uncertainty, and an ensemble of 10 samples. The mean temperature data and uncertainty estimates provided are consistent across a broad range of space and time scales from daily 0.25° to multidecadal global averages. The coverage is significantly better than is available from station data alone, and covers land, ocean and ice areas.

This data has been derived using a statistical method to estimate air temperatures at all places and times. It takes into account uncertainty in the input data sets covering errors in the in situ measurements, land station homogenisation and errors in the air temperatures estimated from satellite data . Although the statistical model estimates temperatures at all locations, the product is not globally complete, as areas with too few data to provide a reliable air temperature estimate have been masked out.

Title Derivation of the EUSTACE Global daily air temperature combining surface and satellite data, with uncertainty estimates, for 1850-2015, v1.0
Abstract Global mean surface air temperature measurements have been derived daily for the period between 1850-2015 based on combined information from satellite and in-situ data sources. This data has been derived using a statistical method to estimate air temperatures at all places and times. It takes into account uncertainty in the input data sets covering errors in the in situ measurements, land station homogenisation and errors in the air temperatures estimated from satellite data . Although the statistical model estimates temperatures at all locations, the product is not globally complete, as areas with too few data to provide a reliable air temperature estimate have been masked out. The derivation of this dataset and the statistical model used has been described further in the EUSTACE Scientific and Product User Guides.
