Temperature Trends: Past Century, Past 30+ Years

Surface temperature trends for the period 1901-2012 (top) and 1979-2012 (bottom) from the National Climatic Data Center’s (NCDC) surface temperature product. The relatively coarse resolution of these maps does not capture the finer details associated with mountains, coastlines, and other small-scale effects.
