This post describes my consolidated global temperature anomaly CSV file that users can easily download to Excel or R to do their own trend analysis.
Do It Yourself Global Temperature Anomaly Trend Analysis
As I wrote in my July 10, 2009 post,
“There are many blogs and web sites (small sample: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) with multiple opinions on global climate trends. Some sites are data oriented and others are opinion oriented. What is a [data analyst] charter to think?
My advice, take a look at the data for yourself. As an Excel or R charter, why not analyze it yourself to get a better appreciation for what is going on.
Here’s the link to my consolidated temperature anomaly CSV file.
I update the consolidated file regularly by downloading the latest agency source files so that the consolidated file includes all source agency data revisions. This way you can get the most up-to-date temperature anomaly data without having to reformat/ manipulate the 5 individual files.
