Bolin Centre Science Forum

The Reliability of Global Temperature Averages

Philip D. Jones is a world leading scientist on global climate change. He is principally known for his time series of global temperatures, which has been central in all reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The talk by Philip Jones will discuss what’s important and what isn’t when it comes to working with both land-based stations and sea surface temperatures from oceanic regions. More recently global temperature averages have been produced from satellite records and estimates are now being made using improved Reanalyses. His talk will also discuss the history of the series and comparisons of the various approaches used that can be used today.
Scientists from the Bolin Centre will highlight some examples of the importance of global instrumental datasets for the advancement of our understanding in climate science. A perspective on Swedish temperature and precipitation data, which is a subset of global datasets, is also given.

Speaker: Professor Philip Jones, University of East Anglia
Also: Anders Moberg, Erik Engström, Fernando Jaramillo, Juan Acosta Navarro and Frida Bender

Date: Thursday 29 September, 2016, 10.00–12.00
Fika from 9.30

Place: Nordenskiöld room, Geoscience Building
