Berkeley Earth is pleased to announce that we’ve merged an oceans temperature analysis to our existing land data, and have a new global data set: Land + Ocean
Berkeley Earth was created to address potential biases in the land surface temperature record. We are now expanding scientific investigations, educating and communicating about climate change, and evaluating mitigation efforts in developing and developed economies.
Berkeley Earth has now posted new analyses and graphics on the changing range of seasonal temperatures, permafrost melt, GCMs and the regional amplification of global warming, model responses to greenhouse gases, checking GCMs against 20th century data, and global energy and emissions.
Berkeley Earth provides a clickable map so you can find temperature data for your hometown, state, or country. Check it out!
Berkeley Earth is independently operated, funded primarily by unrestricted educational grants. We pursue objectivity without concern for policies of government, industry or philanthropic ventures.
We continue to lower the barriers to entry into climate science by posting all our raw data and our analysis code online to provide an open platform for further analysis. We also post all our Berkeley Earth papers, memos, graphics and analysis code.
Berkeley Earth took a data-driven approach to temperature analysis (using five times more data than other groups), and we are now taking a data-driven approach to other areas of energy and climate science.
