In the book a survey is given of the basic works on the change in climate. Extensive factual data of variations in air temperature is given as one of the most important elements of climatic indices. Variations in temperature are investigated for each month of the year and on the average for the year on Earth from instrumental observations of the last 100-200 years. The connection is studied of the change in temperature with atmospheric circulation, solar activity, and ice cover of the Arctic and Antarctic seas. The book is intended for meteorologists, climatologists and all those who are interested in changes in climate. There are numerous graphs and tables, and in the appendix a list of meteorological stations and a map showing their location are given.
