    • Description:

      The dataset contains monthly average surface temperature values from over 5,000
      weather stations across the world.

      The data comes from HadCRUT3, a gridded dataset of global historical surface
      temperature anomalies produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climatic
      Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. It is one of the global
      temperature records that has underpinned Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
      Change (IPCC) assessment reports and numerous scientific studies.

      The data subset consists of a network of individual land stations that has been
      designated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) for use in climate
      monitoring and other data that the Met Office has gained permission from the
      owners to make available.
