100 member realisations sampling the observational uncertainty model of HadCRUT4, an observational dataset of blended land air temperatures and sea surface temperatures. Data are in netcdf format for 1850-2014 period, given as anomalies with respect to 1961-1990 period. Measurement and sampling uncertainty ensemble created following technique described in Jones and Kennedy (2017). N.B. this is not a formal addition to the HadCRUT4 dataset product. Annual means created from monthly fields, requiring at least 8 months of non-missing data to be present to create annual mean at gridpoint.
