About the climate stripes

Average temperatures have been recorded nationwide since 1888. A look at this data shows how much the temperature has increased over the past 20 years. This type of visualisation is called warming stripes and was developed by climatologist Ed Hawkins. Shown above: The visualised average temperature for Bocholt. The data basis is the annual temperature grid of the German Weather Service.
