Millennial temperature datasets over the three poles produced by paleoclimate data assimilation

(1) Data content: Millennial temperature (near-surface air temperature anomaly based on the millinnial mean)datasets over the three poles, e.g., Arctic, Antarctic, and Qinghai-Tibet Plateau; (2) Data sources and processing methods: These datasets were produced by the authors themselves using the paleoclimate data assimilationand approach based on climatic proxies over the three poles; (3) Description of data quality: There are high spatio-temporal consistency between these datasets and several instrumental gridded temperature datasets (correlation coefficient above 0.6, p <0.001; Nash efficiency coefficient above 0.5). In addition, the correlations between these datasets and several proxy-based temperature series are between 0.4 and 0.8 (p <0.001). (4) Data application achievements and prospects: These datasets can be used to investigate the temporal and spatial variations in temperature over the three poles during the past millennium.
