We fit 12 independent surface temperature time series (zones of latitude), 6 land- and 6 ocean-based, with a Gaussian (centered around WW2) on a quadratic background. The four polar zones are unusable. Each of the remaining 8 shows evidence of a 0.2-0.3 degree C bump, although one zone is dropped from the final analysis because of an aberrant fit. Thus, we find that a surface temperature increase around WW2 is a robust, statistically significant (5.2 sigma) feature of the data, and must either… Expand

A large discontinuity in the mid-twentieth century in observed global-mean surface temperature
TLDR
It is argued that the abrupt temperature drop in 1945 is the apparent result of uncorrected instrumental biases in the sea surface temperature record, and Corrections for the discontinuity are expected to alter the character of mid-twentieth century temperature variability but not estimates of the century-long trend in global-mean temperatures.
