Paleo Website Java Animations

These animations give a paleo perspective on global warming, drought, and global temperature patterns. Climate Research Unit (CRU) data from 1856-1997 are used to create six animations that show globally mapped temperature. Three other animations reconstruct climates for the last 260 years and show spatial patterns of annual temperature anomalies. There are also two drought animations and an interactive presentation on global temperature patterns in past centuries.
