Global Surface Temperature Changes Datasets Converted to 1850-1900 Baseline

Nowarski, Joseph

Global warming datasets converted to the uniform baseline. NASA, NOAA and Berkeley Earth datasets of global surface temperature changes in the period 1850-2021 for land+ocean, 1750-2021 for land only and 1880-2021 for ocean only, converted to the 1850-1900 baseline.

Changes in this version: added original baselines data added formula for conversion from the original baseline to 1850-1900 baseline, including relevant conversion factor
