Question and answer
Q: 2.How do the researchers gather data for worldwide temperatures?
A: From the beginning of the 20th century, when ships started to be equipped with radio, daily weather reporting was a practice for every nation. [ Seafarers are very respectful of the weather and collaborated willingly, even during times of war. A country like Norway, with a very large merchant fleet and remote polar locations like the islands of Spitsbergen and Jan Mayen, were important
participant to this gathering. As you certainly understand, knowing pressure, temperature, etc. for many places is what enables the meteorologist to draw accurate maps of the weather pattern with high and low pressures. Today, it is the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) who gathers all information and makes it available in a standard format to all participating countries. That need to keep a standard reporting system is, of course, as old as meteorology and the weather reports for aviators called METAR, TAF and SIGMET, still use symbols based on what radio officers keyed on their Morse radio set at the beginning of the last century.
