How to use

The zip file contains annually resolved summer temperature records for the Northern Hemisphere mid- and high-latitudes from SCH15, WIL16 and 5 PMIP3 model simulations (see references in main paper), together with detected negative and positive breaks using indicator saturation (model setup and coefficients explained in main paper).
