Change in the uncertainty fields of the HadSST2 error series

In November 2007, we corrected a bug in the error estimates for the HadSST2 data set. This correction has had an effect on the error ranges for the global average temperatures distributed from this website. Note that the best estimate values are unchanged, the effect of the bug was to make the error ranges slightly too big.

If you downloaded HadSST2 global average data from this site before November 2007, please download replacements. Note that the best-estimate data is unaffected, only the uncertainties have changed. We're sorry for this error, if you want any further information, please contact us.
