Main Question or Discussion Point

I thought this would be easy to find - but I can't find it. All the data I can find on-line is local to location.

I am looking for data showing the highest recorded temperature on the planet per year over the past 30 years.

Does anyone know if such data is compiled / accessible?

Thanks for the links. I'll keep looking. I do like the GCOS page - lots of great articles to dig through.

there is
http://berkeleyearth.org/ which has datasets.
http://berkeleyearth.org/data/
in gridded NetCDF format
https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/

source files
http://berkeleyearth.org/source-files/
and analysis code SVN, ( Matlab they say )
or direct download ( ../tar/gz )( dnld says 11 min on this computer but I cancelled - I don't know what it looks like - billions of data btw )
http://berkeleyearth.org/analysis-code/

You will have to sift through the data, to get what you want.
And the site has some nice graphs

One can check also check the two famous weather websites on a daily basis: Ogimet.com and rp5.ru.
They give the lowest and highest temperature in the network of stations which transmit data in the international flow.
