The USCRN is a new ‘state of the art’ United States Climate Reference Network.

The USCRN “consists of 114 stations developed, deployed, managed, and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the continental United States for the express purpose of detecting the national signal of climate change.”

This is the monthly Mean from both NOAA and USCRN for July 2012 for the 48 continental states.

9 states show USCRN stations warmer than NOAA (bold) and 39 show NOAA warmer than USCRN.

  1. Is the NOAA data the raw version or the adjusted version. It would be interesting to see how much upward adjustment NOAA made on the July data.
