U.N. Experts Agree to Refine Climate Data

Wednesday, 24 Feb 2010 07:23 AM


Experts at a U.N. climate meeting have agreed to collect more precise temperature data as part of a global effort to monitor climate change.

The World Meteorological Organization says delegates at a meeting in Antalya, Turkey, approved in principal a British proposal to gather land surface temperature data more frequently and ensure the process is transparent.

The decision comes after e-mails stolen from a British university last year prompted public debate over the reliability of climate change predictions.

Britain's Met Office said Wednesday improved data likely won't result in any substantial changes to existing climate models but could give scientists a better understanding of temperature extremes and what humans can do to adapt.
