changes in Europe 1975-2000; mean annual change
changes January-December 1975-2000 estimated as the difference between the
simple 11yr means for the periods 1970-1980 and 1995-2005. Longitudes and latitudes
are indicated along the axis of the diagram.
The period 1975-2000
is generally recognised in
as a period of widespread warming, being the result of alleged anthropogenic
global warming. The net annual warming was largest in southwestern Europe and in
parts of Sweden. A region extending in northwesterly direction from the Black
Sea towards the North Atlantic saw relatively small or no changes. Part of
Romania was cooling slightly.
