CRUTEM4 is a gridded dataset of global historical near-surface air temperature anomalies over land.
This specific version is CRUTEM22.214.171.124-2013-03, available for each month from January 1850 to March 2013, on a 5 degree grid.
Hemispheric and global anomaly series are provided.
The dataset is a collaborative product of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia and the Met Office Hadley Centre.
The CRUTEM4 dataset is updated on a monthly basis; these updates are available from the institutions listed below (see Links).
