I have been collecting global surface data series for comparison with models. In the process I've made a big table, which is handy for reading into R. It contains:
1. The surface land and ocean indices - Hadcrut3, GIStemp and NOAA (current to April 2010)
2. The two satellite lower trop indices - UAH and MSU RSS (likewise)
3. A collection of model results for surface air temp (SAT). There are 24 models, using SRES A1B (scenario), and a total of 57 runs.
The table goes from 1850 to 2300, although of course most columns have blanks before and after the real data.
The mod/noscript>el run results were collected from Geert's KNMI site using Steve McIntyre's script.
There are two auxiliary files which give data describing the columns, and a readme.txt. They are all in the modeltable.zip file in the document repository.
