get_temp2k(use_cache = TRUE, write_cache = getOption("hs_write_cache"))

Arguments

use_cache

(boolean) Return cached data if available, defaults to TRUE. Use FALSE to fetch updated data.

write_cache

(boolean) Write data to cache, defaults to FALSE. Use TRUE to write data to cache for later use. Can also be set using options(hs_write_cache=TRUE)

Value

Invisibly returns a tibble with filtered and unfiltered temperature reconstructions and Cowtan & Way instrumental temperatures.

get_temp2k invisibly returns a tibble with the PAGES2k Consortium temperature reconstruction (years 1-2000 CE) and instrumental record (years 1850-2017 CE). Temperatures represent deviations from the 1961-1990 mean.

The returned object includes annual average temperature anomalies as well as filtered anomalies using a 31-year Butterworth filter. Reconstructions use seven different statistical methods that draw from a global collection of temperature-sensitive palaeoclimate records.

Methodology described in PAGES2k (2019) https://www.nature.com/articles/s41561-019-0400-0
