The annual global temperature anomaly as measured over time since the year 1850.

The annual global surface temperature anomalies relative to a 1961-1990 reference period as historically measured over time since the year 1850 based on the UK Met Office HadCRUT5.0 dataset (Morice et al.). The 3-D graph illustrates the rise in average temperatures and climate change. The Scientific colour map vik is used to represent data accurately and to all readers.
