Berkeley Earth Temperature Averaging Process

A new mathematical framework is presented for producing maps and large-scale averages of temperature changes from weather station thermometer data for the purposes of climate analysis. The method allows inclusion of short and discontinuous temperature records, so nearly all digitally archived thermometer data can be used. The framework uses the statistical method known as Kriging to interpolate data from stations to arbitrary locations on the Earth.

Keywords: Earth surface temperature; Kriging; Global warming; Temperature homogenization
