      Climate of 2006 - Annual Report

      Global Temperatures
      The global annual temperature for combined land and ocean surfaces in
      2006 was +0.54�C (+0.97�F) above average, ranking 5th warmest in the
      period of record. However, uncertainties in the global calculations
      due largely to gaps in data coverage make 2006 statistically
      indistinguishable from 2005 and several other recent warm years as
      shown by the error bars on the global time series. Globally averaged
      land temperatures were +0.78�C (+1.40�F) and ocean temperatures +0.45�
      C (+0.81�F) above average, ranking 4th and 5th warmest, respectively.
      The land and ocean surface temperatures for the Northern and Southern
      Hemisphere ranked 2nd and 6th warmest, respectively.
