Climate reports for 2016
In most climate data sets 2015 was the hottest year on record. 2016 already showed a lot of record breaking months. So will 2016 also break the record again? We publish the data as soon as the sets are released.
The first two sets to have 2016 complete were those based on satellite data from UAH and REMSS. Both sets are controversial within the climate science community. But both reported a record setting 2016, be it with a small margin. Their data starts at 1979.
The first major surface level based series published it's data on January 16th. The Japanese set (JMA) also showed 2016 as record breaking, again with a small margin.
And on January 18th the three major climate data organisations published their results for 2016 together. And they all have 2016 as a record year.
First NASA - GISS:
Followed by NOAA - NCDC:
And finally MetOffice - HadCrut4:
And to complete the series, Berkeley published their final results for 2016. And that makes seven records.
And also the recalculated set based on HadCrut4 by Cowtan and Way (2.0) has 2016 as hottest year.
Update March 7, 2017: We've added the Copernicus ERA interim dataset. Here's their chart.

We've been creating visualizations based on different sets of climate data since we started. We've combined all the well known ones in different versions for this case. The charts will be updated when new data comes in.
Now 2017 has finished we publish all climate data reports for that year as soon as the data comes in. 2016 was a record in all series, 2017 probably will be in the top 3 in all.
DATA VAN DE DAG - The combination of global warming and the current El Nino seem to lead to new temperature records for Februari 2016. Now even the satellite series are reporting records, we show them all.
DATA VAN DE DAG - The world has been warming for some time now. But due to a strong El Nino the warming in 2015 and 2016 will be even higher. How much higher? We show the graphs from the five major surface based measurements sets.
DATA VAN DE DAG: Met Kerst op een terras kunnen zitten, dat was uitzonderlijk. Dat is niemand ontgaan. Maar hoe opvallend was de decembermaand precies? Data van De Bilt laat een duidelijk record zien.
