The Warming stripe for each site is available as a png file. One m-file with matlab (R2017a) code, that reads a data file and produces a Warming stripe, is also included. This kind of data presentation is inspired by a larger set of visualisations of climate records in the online Climate Lab Book by Prof. Ed Hawkins, National Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of Reading. The warming stripes presented here are derived from instrumental records of annual mean air temperature data for Sweden (1860–2018), Stockholm (1756–2018), Uppsala (1722–2018), and Longyearbyen, Svalbard (1898–2018). They are based on data from the following sources: Sweden: <a href="http://www.smhi.se/klimatdata/meteorologi/temperatur/klimatindikator-temperatur-1.2430">SMHI</a>. This data series is a composite of 35 stations from Sweden having homogenized temperature records. Stockholm: <a href="https://bolin.su.se/data/stockholm-historical-temps-monthly">Stockholm Historical Weather Observations – Monthly mean air temperatures since 1756</a>. The version of the Stockholm temperature series used here is adjusted for the urban heat island effect. The data series is discussed in: Moberg A, Bergström H, Ruiz Krigsman J, Svanered O. (2002): Daily air temperature and pressure series for Stockholm (1756–1998). Climatic Change, 53, 171–212, <a href="https://doi.org/10.1023/A:1014966724670">doi:10.1023/A:1014966724670</a>. Uppsala: <a href="https://www.smhi.se/klimatdata/meteorologi/temperatur/uppsalas-temperaturserie-1.2855">SMHI</a>. The version of the Uppsala temperature series use here is adjusted for the urban heat island effect. The data series is discussed in: Bergström H, Moberg A. (2002): Daily air temperature and pressure series for Uppsala (1722–1998). Climatic Change 53, 213–252, <a href="https://doi.org/10.1023/A:1014983229213">doi:10.1023/A:1014983229213</a>. Longyearbyen, Svalbard: Data were obtained by personal communication with Øyvind Nordli at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. The data series is discussed in: Nordli Ø, Przybylak R, Ogilvie AEJ, Isaksen K. (2014): Long-term temperature trends and variability on Spitsbergen: the extended Svalbard Airport temperature series, 1898–2012.

The following persons provided various kinds of help with putting together and updating this dataset: Frederik Schenk and Anders Moberg at Stockholm University; Erik Kjellström at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute; Veijo Pohjola, Ward van Pelt and Erik Sahlée at the Uppsala University; and Øyvind Nordli at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.
