Goddard Institute figures

I have not been able to find a page on the Goddard Institute site which gives an actual list of estimated temperature anomalies. However, from the map-building page one can, in time, build such a list. I gleaned the following on 14-16.1.10, 16.6.12 and 13.7.15; you will see that the detailed estimates presented have changed over the years, but that the patterns are similar. The "land" figures (GISS analysis, apparently including the Arctic Ocean) seem to correspond to the Global Temperature (meteorological stations) graph. An alternative version incorporating the Reynolds-Rayner-Smith analysis of ocean temperatures gives rather different figures.
