Data sets

Long-term Surface Temperature (LoST) Database F.o J. Cuesta-Valero, A. García-García, H. Beltrami, E. Zorita and F. Jaume-Santero

Short summary
A database of North American long-term ground surface temperatures, from approximately 1300 CE to 1700 CE, was assembled from geothermal data. These temperatures are useful for studying the future stability of permafrost, as well as for evaluating simulations of preindustrial climate that may help to improve estimates of climate models’ equilibrium climate sensitivity. The database will be made available to the climate science community.
