The Berkeley Earth Land/Ocean Temperature Record

Robert A. Rohde and Zeke Hausfather

Data sets

Berkeley Earth Combined Land and Ocean Temperature Field, Jan 1850-Nov 2019 Robert A. Rohde and Zeke Hausfather

Short summary
A global land and ocean temperature record was created by combining the Berkeley Earth monthly land temperature field with a newly interpolated version of the HadSST3 ocean dataset. The resulting dataset covers the period from 1850 to present. This paper describes the methods used to create that combination and compares the results to other estimates of global temperature and the associated recent climate change, giving similar results.
