Global Warming Datasets Converted to 1850-1900 Baseline

Nowarski, Joseph

This publication includes global warming databases converted to the uniform baseline. The publication includes NASA, NOAA and Berkeley Earth databases of global surface temperature changes in the period 1850-2021 for land+ocean, 1750-2021 for land only and 1880-2021 for ocean only. The databases are converted to the 1850-1900 baseline showing minor differences between them. 61 years linear trendlines indicate constant increase of global warming reaching in 2021 0.017 °C/y for land+ocean, 0.026 °C/y for land only, and 0.012 °C/y for ocean only.
