Figure 2-11  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 Kwajalein and Majuro in the RMI. The northern hemisphere temperature time series (purple line, Hadley CRU NH) is superimposed for comparison. Trends in maximum temperatures in the eastern part of the Western North Pacific sub-region have high levels of variability and may reflect issues in the quality of the data or station infrastructure.
