October 2016 Global Surface (Land+Ocean) and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomaly Update

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale

It also includes a few model-data comparisons.

This is simply an update, but it includes a good amount of background information for those new to the datasets. Because it is an update, there is no overview or summary for this post.
