Lower Tropospheric Temperatures

  General Notes
  1. Data from the University of Alabama (Huntsville) (i.e. UAH) and available here.
2. These plots use the latest available data from UAH and therefore include any revisions (currently at v6.0).
3. The monthly anomalies are relative to the 1981-2010 average for the corresponding calendar month.
4. On all graphs the year label appears in the January position.
5. My thanks to Dr. Wilson Flood of Dumfries, Scotland, for preparing these graphs
