Mapping global temperature changes: every year from 1850 to 2016
Ed Hawkins, climate scientist in the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) at the University of Reading and IPCC AR5 Contributing Author, has provided another telling visual of how the climate is changing.
Hawkins has mapped out the annual average temperature anomaly for each year from 1850 to 2016 using the technique of ‘small multiples’. The result: a series of 167 tiny maps that allow viewers to quickly spot patterns and trends.The views and opinions expressed through the MAHB Website are those of the contributing authors and do not necessarily reflect an official position of the MAHB.
