Caption: Global atmospheric temperature anomalies. Colour- coded map of the World, showing the distribution of temperature anomalies in the troposphere in February 1984. Temperature anomalies are defined as deviations from a long-term mean. The colours represent the temperature differences from the mean, coded from red (+2 Celsius) through yellow (+1 C), green (no change), blue (-1 C) to purple (-2 C). February 1984 was unusually warm over Canada, Scandinavia and China but colder than usual over Russia and Greenland. Grey areas indicate missing data. The data were gathered by a microwave sounder on the TIROS-N satellite.
