UK urges changes to recording the weather

The Met Office, as the United Kingdom’s representative to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), has proposed a programme to deliver a new global temperature dataset.

According to the government agency, the initiative will augment, not replace, the current temperature datasets and involve work across the international meteorological community. The proposed dataset will provide information on changing extremes and regional variability, and so strengthen decisions on adapting to climate change.

This will require surface temperature datasets with more detail than the current monthly averaged temperatures.

Data will be available at daily, or even finer time scales, using methods that are fully peer reviewed and open to scrutiny providing independent assessments of surface temperature.

The new analysis will add to and refine the existing datasets which all show global and continental-scale multi-decadal trends of increasing temperatures.
