The CRUTEM4 dataset provides Google Earth users with access to one of the most widely used records of Earth's climate
The CRUTEM4 dataset allows Google Earth users to drill down through some 20,000 graphs and view monthly, seasonal and annual temperature data
Using the CRUTEM4 dataset through Google Earth lets users zoom in on any of the 6,000 weather stations
Gaps in the checkerboard indicate remote areas that lack weather stations
Talking about the weather is a pastime as old as language, but climate researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the UK have just given people a whole lot more to talk about. As part of an ongoing effort to increase the accessibility and transparency of data on past climate and climate change, they've made one of the most widely used records of Earth's climate accessible through Google Earth.
