Maximum monthly temperature anomaly time series from Yap, Guam, and Palau, 1952 to 2012

Figure 2-10 Maximum monthly temperature anomaly time series from 1952 to 2012 (using 1960–
1990 as the mean reference period) for single monitoring stations with the most data in Yap, Guam, and Palau. The northern hemisphere temperature time series (purple line, Hadley CRU NH) is superimposed for comparison. Trends in maximum temperatures in the western part of the Western North Pacific subregion appear to be increasing at the same general rate as average northern hemisphere temperatures, although Yap shows a high level of variability.
